    I always wished I had a younger brother.

    I was always the younger one, but I was so much more mature than my brother that I never saw him as a role model. I always thought that if I had a younger brother, I would do my best to make sure they looked up to me.

    My Big Brother journey started in the summer of 1981. I just completed my first year at college and as I was relaxing by the pool I read a story in a tabloid magazine about a boy who was mauled by a dog after saving another boy from the same fate. The dog literally chewed...

    did your brother greet you with a black eye or a hug? Maybe you have a contentious relationship with your brother, or maybe it’s the most wonderful, loving relationship in the world–or maybe it’s both. Wish I had brother
