We walked down to the beach for the last dip of the day in the rich afternoon light of the Caribbean. Three brothers rode up on horseback—two young men and this youngest boy trailing behind. They thrashed around, yanking the horses up on hind legs, galloping to and fro, kicking up sand, loving the spectacle they were making. The youngest brother, especially, was beaming with a sense of pride and camaraderie. When his brothers wanted to take their horses into the water, all joy drained from his face. Too afraid to follow them in, he and his horse remained alone on the shore.
