My Brother

October 3, 2007
By Matt Erickson, Normal, IL

When he left for college I was devastated. One of the most important people in my life is gone. He comes back once in a while but it isn’t the way it used to be. We still have that sibling connection but it isn’t as strong as when we were younger. I didn’t realize that I would be lost without him. I call him if I need help instead of going to my parents. He always has the right answers. If he does come back we have an awesome time together. We reminisce about all the things we’ve. The good and the bad. Most of all I love just sitting at the dinner table with my whole family and just talking. I’ve done it for so long that I never really appreciated it that much. Now that I don’t have that I feel out of place. I get used to it but I still miss and love my brother.
