While perusing the news headlines and this day in news – ‘Cats’ opened on Broadway on this date – I came across the story of an eight-year-old boy’s suicide in Ohio.
Reports have come out that he was assaulted at school two days before his death. Bullied.
I think a lot of things about those who assaulted him. I try to be kind toward them but my teeth are on edge. Naturally, my writing energies begin spinning stories around this.
Eight years old.
