Joining the Army
Ok, I'm not joining the army. My 20 year old little brother is. I am so proud of him, finding his own way in this crazy world, especially with the cards he was delt in the past. It's always so inspiring to hear about people who overcame a difficult family life and did something with their life besides perpetuating the cycle. I'll admit, him leaving for boot camp in about a month makes me sad since he won't be in California anymore and I worry about him getting sent into a combat zone. But reguardless of any of that, I'm proud of him. It isn't an easy life, but it will help him to escape his toxic surroundings and really become the man he is meant to be.
