Dear Little Brother, I miss you, and wish you could be here to see that the dream of freedom you so willingly gave your life for really does live on.  Do you remember how we weren't allowed to even TALK to the black kids in the neighborhood when we lived in Alabama back in 1950?  Well, Tuesday, I will cast my vote for our first Black President. I will do it proudly and in your honor. I love you. Jer.
