Annotation

In an age of hateful bullying and advances for LGBT and gender nonconforming people, there's no easy way to understand what these struggles mean unless you put a face to them. What better face is there to look at than that of an innocent child who is full of wonder at the world? In the end, the story shows that whatever issues children need to deal with, they'll be okay as long as they have loving and supportive adults in their corner.
