Sunday photo blogging: The defenders

Sep 16, 2007

My mother cleaned out her closet and found a lot of family photos, my first grade report card, a 1978 US Virgin Islands license plate, and other stuff.

One of the photos was this snapshot of my brothers Nick and Matt dressed in their homemade knight’s armor and ready to defend our corner of DeKalb, Illinois.

Nick and Matt, defenders of justice and peace

As it happens, Nick and Matt are still brothers in arms. Nick is an emergency medical technician in Phoenix (and applicant to area fire departments), while Matt is a Mesa police officer. My mother is proud of them, and rightly so.
