  • Brent's Actions With His Brother
    780 words
    Brent Staples' A Brother's Murder A belief I feel very strongly about proposes that all problems faced by our society have solutions. If this belief is true, why do problems still face us today?

My personal hero is my brother Tim. He always, always thinks of others before himself, he isn't selfish and he isn't bitter, he ...
