I read a story a couple of days ago about a young man in Australia that was relegated to the back row for a class picture. The kid’s name was Luke Smith. He’s 11. I’ve been in the back row, we all have. But we can stand.
Look at this picture -
I have no idea what this school was thinking. This is idiotic and the Smith family was saddened and outraged. So am I.
Luke, I know this isn’t the same as having your picture taken with your mates in the proper way, but I just had to do this, if only to show you that there are people around the world that are thinking of you today. And I’m pitying you, not in the way you think, though. I pity you that we have to share this planet with people who are beyond stupid. In this sense, you are my brother.
