My brother is 50 years old. He started off life as 1 of 9 children in 1964. The child of an alcoholic father and a single mother. It was a home of turmoil. My mother was wonderful but she could not afford to educate us.

My brother learned carpentry. Got married, had 2 children. His wife never worked so he had the burden of providing for his family. Struggling for the most part. Getting laid off almost every winter.  He never lost his zest for life.

He decided to leave carpentry for a more stable job environment. He went to school and got a truck driving license and has been working for a cement company.

On Monday he took his first paid vacation in 18 years. He has never traveled nor has has a week away. Yesterday while on a dirt bike he hit a rock. Fractured multiple bones and punctured a lung. Money will become an issue because he cannot work.
