It is the most painful thing for me to endure sometimes because not only do I have no control over the situation, neither does my brother.
He is not a violent person by any stretch of the means but was just forced into a childhood that was less than perfect.
I'm not putting him into a "victim" category either...we just had a very abnormal upbringing. He is definately not a "victim" b/c I turned out
fine as did our older sister. As a matter of fact, my sister and I were his guardians after our parents died so, he had much more support than we
He just made mistakes with drugs as a result of growing up in unusual situations.
Again, I just want to say that I make NO excuses for him and his decisions...I'm just saying that a kid that tokes now and then to mask his pain does
not deserve being imprisoned with rapists, child molesters and murderers.
