For the most part, the only things I had to worry about in high school was getting to class on time, finishing my homework, and getting enough sleep at night. Well, two out of three wasn't bad. And in retrospect, I can see I had a pretty charmed life.
But nothing puts all that into perspective quite like hearing about someone who had their own ideal childhood/adolescence put on hold for some real, profound problems. Just look at this teenager, who had her life turned upside down out of the blue.
