My wife Hilary came across this very powerful video in Oprah Magazine of Billy Bob Thornton talking about the enormous impact the death of his younger brother, Jimmy Don, has had on his life. This is short-only about 2 minutes.
Mr. Thornton’s sage words of advice, particularly these, ring very true with me.
You won’t ever get over it, and the more you know that, and embrace it, the better off you are. I don’t want to forget my brother; I don’t want to forget what I felt like when he died. Because he deserves it!
