"Is he ever going to come back home?"

My name is Luis Hernandez. I am a junior in high school and I'm from the South Bronx. When I was 14, my 16-year-old brother was sent to Rikers Island for a year for a crime he did not commit. It impacted him mentally, emotionally and physically. A sense of my childhood was lost during the fight to gain back his freedom. I'm too young to vote so promise you'll vote for me, my community and my brother.
