They will rip your heart out, these stories. True stories written by teens. Stories of darkness. Stories about drug addiction, abuse, homelessness, unplanned pregnancy, suicide, homophobia, drinking, bullying, desperation. Stories written so well, you wonder if it's really teens who wrote them. Read them. Share them. Tell everyone. And maybe they will inspire more teens to unburden their pain and feel lighter and happier.
One of them is written by Josey, @roycedaniel's youngest daughter. Here it is on my blog.
