I've gotta get this boy some help.
We were discussing self respect and how you have to accept who you are and do your best and how life has its ups and downs and you gotta keep a positive attitude and keep trying...and one of the 2nd grade boys said, "My life rarely has ups." His voice was really heartbreaking.
Wow. We all tried to point out good things in his life, and even talked about another kid on campus who is IN A WHEEL CHAIR!
When I asked him what was the worst part about his life, he couldn't think of anything.
Or didn't want to say.
