I found this article in the Boston Globe by Kevin Cullen compelling as it ties in with something I got from our readings this week. The readings in "Red" illustrated inner strength through adversity. These young authors exemplified their inner strength as they conquered varying obstacles ranging from conquering a boulder, to dealing with the drama associated with teenage life. It is the later that stands out as the link to the story which describes a tormented bullied teenage girl pictured here driven to suicide. And it is a sad fact that the bullies still run rampant without having received any sort of disciplinary action. It is this horrific fact that will only prove to disrupt, if not destroy another innocent life.
