Showing compassion for others

HOUSTON, Texas, — Bryan Watt is his sister’s hero. A free-spirited young kid, he did what he wanted to do. He dropped out of school the summer before his senior year and decided to live on the streets in Spokane, Wash. He managed to get a small studio apartment and volunteered with fellow street kids at a charity called ‘Cup of Cool Water.’ 

            The apartment didn’t last long because he desired to “sleep under the stars” and protect the other homeless kids living on the streets.

            Shortly after, he chose to turn his life around and go back to school to get his GED so he could work with his hands in the construction industry.

            He worked hard doing random jobs to save money so he could be close to our mother in Houston, Texas. He finally made it and got a job doing what he loved in construction. At the young age of 22, that job took his life.

            My brother lived life with no regrets and did what made him happy instead of worrying about what others said. He was such an inspiration to me.

  1. My earthly angel. Such true attributes that you wrote.. Bryan always took the time to think of the needs of others. I don’t know where he got such unique qualities from. How selfish I/we are at times. Oh, how I miss him !
