At this time last year, I made a post about my youngest brother because it was his birthday and I missed him horribly. Today is again his birthday I wanted to give him another shout out.
It's your birthday again and I wish that I could spend it with you. Always remember that you are 100% capable of everything you want to accomplish. You are funny and brave and these two things will continue to help you throughout your life, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Of all the people I've met I can't think of another 17 year old that I would want to hang out with more than you.
You may not be aware of this, but you allow others to recognize that the things that make them weird also make them incredible. I hope you always remember how special you are and how much I'm rooting for you.
