No one acknowledges his presence, nobody stops to say "Hello" or even nod.
My. Heart. Breaks.
How can they not see the brilliance of his smile?
How is the warmth of his heart ignored? How can they be so cruel in their dismissal? They are teenagers, that is how. Even those who have grown up with him now move aside as he passes. Alone.
One friend, just one. It is all it takes.
Has nobody learnt that loneliness can kill?
Please... anybody? Somebody? Help him. Save him.
