Make your move

"I'm a pawn," he says happily a few days earlier. "A pawn has power. You can never tell what a pawn will do next. A pawn can take anybody on the board."

"I would -- what do you call that word? -- sacrifice myself for my family," says the 15-year-old. "If my mother was in danger, I would put myself in front of her so she doesn't get hurt. I would sacrifice myself for my mother."

I would make that same sacrifice for my mother, or anyone else I loved.

Here's the story of a remarkable young man.

Godspeed, my young brother.
