I watch as my sister reaches for that ring.
As her small body pulls itself up from the horse and takes a leap of faith.
I know she's not going to make it, she'll fall or hurt herself somehow.
But I know that I can't interfere with her childhood, I can't protect her from everything.
She's going to go through a lot of pain in this damned world and I can't stop that.
The best I can do is watch, and make sure she doesn't become a phony like the rest of us.
