This is a story from a few years ago. This kid, who always seemed to smile, was actually hiding incredible hurt inside.
As so often happens, the most perceptive people took advantage of that hurt and used it to give the illusion they were better.
It’s also about what can happen when people have the courage to reach out for help. There’s more than just “talking,” of course–but it is, at the very least, a place to start.
