â€œI remember in seventh grade, at the beginning of the day, there was a boy named Roger standing in the hallway, and I adored him. He never gave up, even though he had a challenge, Down Syndrome â€¦ There was a girl named Nadia who would shake her hips and twirl her curls; she thought she was all that. I was walking to class, and I saw her and (others) throwing dirt (from a plant) in Roger's eyes, and he was smiling. He smiled because he thought these kids finally wanted to play with him, spend time with him.
