In this letter, written to my sister, I connect memories from our childhood to present-day lived experiences. By presenting my memories as fragments, I reveal them as ruptures that are layered with history and unresolved feelings. Through reflection, I show how the choices in the present repeat the history of the past. A family history tied to the military, sibling relationships, and life choices are all re-experienced.
