There is a little girl I work with who's story is not mine to share, but the way this girl hurts makes me hurt. Her words, her actions, her demeanor just scream WHY WON'T YOU SEE ME?!?
Take a minute today and show kindness to a teenager. Sometimes they are loud and crazy and rude and frustrating but I really believe that all the kids that we write off as being too difficult are really just the ones no one has taken time to love.
The ones that get loved on, really really loved on, love back and that is amazing.
