  1. Kudos mate, you absolutely hit this one out of the park. The lesson that personal change has to come from within – it can’t be forced – is something that some folk sadly never learn. At a national level, government social and foreign policy would look very different if policymakers understood this.

    At a personal level, your correspondent is hurting. Not only because he desperately wants to help his brother…but also simply because he himself reads your blog. This tells me that he wants to improve himself, and he will have a hard time understanding that his brother may not feel the same way. That will confuse him and tear him up.

    To that man I say: Be the best man you can be. Love your brother. Kia kaha.
