I found Alex W's article "The Silent Wound" extremely moving and breathtaking. I love the writing style used to describe the burden, the weight, and the pain. What I was confused about the article is why did the boy shoot himself? Did he have home problem or was bullied so many times or for other reasons? I can relate to the article; I too have a burden that I feel it cannot be written nor spoken to anyone. Great job with the article Alex; keep up the good work.
