Does your sibling connection sound like chalk scraping on a blackboard?

Does your sibling connection sound like chalk scraping on a blackboard. Brothers and sisters sometimes suffer serious sibling rivalry. Creedence Clearwater Revival spun into chaos when younger brother Tom Fogerty tried to dominate their music and older brother John Fogerty rebelled. Their group fell apart and disbanded. When Tom died of AIDS from a blood transfusion in 1990, the brothers had never reconciled.
As embryonic sharks grow in their mother’s womb, the biggest baby devours the rest of the young to make sure he or she has enough to eat. The first-hatched eaglet slays all new hatchlings by pushing them out of the nest, receiving all the food brought by parents, ensuring his survival. The first recorded murder in history, the Bible tells us, was Cain killing his brother Abel. We all know the blood and gore of myths, fables and even new stories chronicling sibling rivalry. Do you have a sibling “ I Hate You “ story?
