Type of Work



When your brother is mentally and physically disabled, it's sometimes hard to know how to love him well. When it's your twin brother you don't really have much time to adjust, you just have to learn as you go. This essay tells the story of one of my greatest lessons in being a better brother, and surprising enough, the answer was found in perhaps the greatest gift I've ever received: my first copy of Calvin and Hobbes.
