My family has owned the same home for the past 55 years.. most folks in berkshire county know my brother, Michael! Since March 17th 2020 he has been home 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Covid-19 prevented my brother from going to his BARC day program. Luckily for him, he has a loving family at home to keep him busy and take good care of him. Michael is non verbal, doesn't suffer from but has been diagnosed (suffering isn't a term we use, he is the happiest person with the biggest heart) epilepsy, mitochondrial disorder, cerebral palsey, epilepsy and type 1 diabetes. Since the age of 5, Michael has driven a lawn mower around our land in Ricmond, MA. As he got older, his interest last changed to a tricycle and a golf cart. Michael had a long, depressing winter stuck inside without being able see his friends. Finally, spring sprung and Michael had been able to go outside on his golf cart. I have been Michael's caregiver for the past 5 years (legally) and even before than we have always had a strong bond. Everyday at 10am when I leave for work and 6pm when I come home, Michael toots his horn on his golf cart and I toot mine back. It puts a smile on his face bigger than you have ever seen! Two weeks ago, a neighbor from 2 doors up came flying in my driveway cursing me out, calling me names and threatening to hit me because of the horn blowing... in our personal driveway. Wednesday evening around 4:30 at night a trooper from the lee, mass barracks served me court paper work. My neighbor has put a no harassment order against me for the horn and now im appearing in court.. over my disabled brother and I beeping horns in our own driveway to greet and leave each other. I am writing a letter to the berkshire eagle about this absurd use of the court system. I am having my neighbors sign a petition. And...

I'm asking anyone who has met my brother, anyone with any compassion...

Write a letter, inbox it to me and i will use it to defend my rights and my brothers happiness

I am my brothers keeper!
