Meyers Leonard was practicing with his Fighting Illini teammates when he noticed something strange happening. All eyes seemed to be on him, and anticipation filled in the arena. Then he saw the neatly dressed figure walking onto the court. That’s when he broke down in tears.
The neatly dressed man was his big brother Bailey, who, to Meyer’s knowledge, was supposed to be out of the country fulfilling his U.S. Marine duties. Bailey was able to take a short leave of absence to come watch his little brother play ball, something he hadn’t been able to do in years. Needless to say, it was a deeply emotional reunion.
The love between family is one of the most beautiful emotions we know. Share this with your family and friends as a powerful reminder of that love!
