I was in a sculpturing class in college and one of our projects was ice sculpturing. I was excited about this project and began thinking about what I could sculpt. I decided to let it be a surprise.
I took my block of ice into the vault freezer at school and began sculpting. I took pieces off here and there and sanded this and that. I continued working hoping I would like my finished product.
The day of the reveal had come. I took my sculpture out to the floor where we were unveiling our pieces. I took a last look at my sculpture before my reveal and took a deep breath.
As I lifted the cloth off of the piece my classmates began to clap.
“Who is it?” They asked.
“My little brother.”
My little brother has cerebral palsy and he is my hero.
