Because of where you are in your life, I don't think you realize how much joy you bring to the world, and to my life. I hope one day you understand that. I've been looking over you since you were born. As your older brother I feel like I've had the responsibility of helping you mold into the person you want to be when you're older. With that responsibility I've always thought that it was my job to teach you that there's beauty in life and that we should remain hopeful, but it turns out that you've been teaching me that throughout these years. When I come home from a long day of school, or work, or anything, not much makes me smile like when you run up to me and hug me. Despite the gap in our age and the fact that are parents are not fully the same, you're one of my best friends. I don't think you yet understand the magnitude of some things that happen in life, but you make life better. Now there's definitely times where you get annoying. I guess that's just part of your growing up. One of the reasons I decided to stay home for college was you and Yoshi. And I don't regret that decision. When I'm in my worst moments, you bring meaning to the void I'm in. And I thank you for that. I don't know if you'll ever read this. But in the time that you do, I'm always with you.
I love you.
