I was sitting on facebook and my mother sent me a link to this story, she went to high school with Ben, Im not sure how she stumbled upon the story, but I do have a pretty good idea of why she sent it to me. Im 18 years old, born in Santa Barbara and spent 13 years there. Although I have never robbed a bank I have gotten myself in more than my fair share of questionable situations. I am doing a lot better then I once was, I feel very lucky to be back on a productive path at such a young age. Having said that, I still lose my optimisum at times. I found this story somewhat of an inspiration. I think it is incredible to have everything taken from you and be in the most seemingly hopeless place in ones life and still strive for meaning. I created a profile just to comment on this story so I could thank the writer and Ben Greenspon for restoring some hope in my heart.
