For the wrong reasons, a group is banning a particular book from schools in West Ashley High School in Charleston, South Carolina.
As someone who deals with a lot of things that people don’t or won’t or can’t share with with their families and their lovers – I find stories like this could be helpful to read ahead of time. People will still have to learn their own experiences, but seeing it from someone else’s eyes might help them reach out to others.
I know not everyone supports this idea, for various reasons – but I find those people who are vocally opposed to sharing stories of hurt / pain are often the same ones who refuse to discuss sex with their kids until it’s too late and someone has been there, done that and dumped the child in question.
From the internet – to South Carolina … read it yourselfs:
