Silent No More This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Custom User Avatar
Do you know what a drowning person looks like? I can tell you – it's not flailing and screaming. The person goes down slowly and quietly. He flails, but not visibly. Then he slowly slips under. The truth is, people drown every day, and not... (more »)
