You've probably seen this video. It's gone viral.
But if you haven't, it's honest . . . and sad.
There is an addendum this boy wrote on YouTube. It's several months after he created this video, and he's happy and doing well now.
I love his honesty. It made me want to reach through the screen and give him a hug.
As a children's book author, it reminded me why I write: So kids like him can feel less alone.
This video is a great reminder how important it is to be kind to one another.
