“For many years, if his name was mentioned, I didn’t have a kind word to say. Then, one day, I received a friend request from him on Facebook. Life after school had not been kind to him. He offered an honest, heartfelt apology. To this day, he is the only one to ever say, ‘I’m sorry.’ I made a new friend out of an old enemy.”

He laughed and said, ‘Okay, I’ll come back and show you, too.’ And boy, has he been showing me.”
