This was a very moving personal story of a beautiful relationship. I have a 22 year old brother with a DD and quite often when I tell people they respond with “I’m sorry.” Which is totally fine because I do not expect anyone who has never experienced or been directly affected by someone with a disability to understand. I always tell them that I wish that I could take a walk in my brother’s shoes. In addition to Faith’s points about her brother never telling a lie, I always like to say my brother and I have never been in a fight! How many siblings can say that about their brother/sister!? 🙂 Great video. I really enjoyed it!
Thanks Emily. I enjoyed it as well. Occasionally, siblings have talked on TED. Another one is “Recognizing Glass Children.” You can see it here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSwqo-g2Tbk
