In Loving Memory. Travell Camron Daveion Arrington, 10.

With an opportunity, many memories of pain are painted inside this single frame of love as Martiece L. Arrington revisits Chicago, IL, to spend his final day with his 7-year-old brother, Travell.

Years have passed since Martiece last seen Travell. Still, this one day that he's able to see Travell is a struggle of not being able to reveal himself but trying to conceal himself in the right way, so in the end, he can tell Travell the most important thing he's always had the chance to say but missed so many times in their spending years.

And though Martiece hates to lead his brother to the worst day of their lives on their final day spent together, there's no other way. So, for the first time, "I love you" needs to be perfect.

I can still remember the tears coming from my eyes as I heard people screaming his name: "Travell! Travell! Please, God, no . . . not Travell."

Born in Chicago, IL, and raised in Bloomington, IL, it was July 7th, 2009, when my ten-year-old brother was killed by a semi-truck and had his cranium crushed underneath the tire. Have you ever lost someone you love? At the time, I was just an eleven-year-old boy trying to figure out why life was never easy for us. The struggles we had to face, the pain, and everything children should never have to face, we did. But I can't question God's will on how my story began; I just have to go with it. The question is: what am I doing here today?

I'm here to inspire the world, become the leader I was always meant to be, share my story, and show the world what a legacy can be made of.

Don't waste your time; purchase The Unknown and enjoy yourself.

One day, you'll watch me and my younger brother's faces on the big screens. Until then, join me on this journey as I've become a man.
