Reader's Diary #1900- Katlynn Chrans: Your Misery, Then Mine

For World Suicide Prevention Day, Katlynn Chrans' "Your Misery, Then Mine" is a great choice. It deals with a bullied kid named Daniel who seems, not surprisingly given the bullying, to be depressed. He definitely doesn't "fit in."

Told from one of the bullies' point of view, the story flashes ahead, giving us more insight into Daniel and also, thankfully, allowing us to witness the reformation of the narrator.

The story feels from the heart and speaks to bystanders about the need to step up.
