Birthday, Bomb & Brothers

The morning of January 13, 2018 had the making to be an explosive day! At 8:07 a.m. while we ate breakfast on Maui we received an emergency alert notifying us of a ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. The alert specifically stated this was not a drill. At 8:45 a.m. we received another message stating, “there is no missile threat or danger to the State of Hawaii. False alarm.” To say, we were awake was an understatement!

Minutes later my Dad called to check on us. It turns out it was his birthday and the family was out to breakfast. For the first time, I heard my brother’s voices. My Dad passed the phone to each of them. What do you say to men who are your brothers but whom you didn’t grow up with? How do you learn each other’s histories?
