Such a brave young man. 

 

 

"I don’t always have the urge to lunge across the table and give the person I’m interviewing a long, mamma-bear hug.

 

But this time was different. And I bet anyone with a beating heart and moment to hear this story would understand.

 

Because it’s all about a kid and a hug.

 

And man, this kid. He aced his AP and honors classes. Made honor roll. Killed it on the varsity soccer team. Sailed through his high school’s Navy Junior ROTC program. Got a fat college scholarship. Held down a job. Babysat all the kids in the house. Cooked and cleaned every week.

 

A model young man.

 

Who has no one to hug him."

 

He will find someone who will let him chase him/her until he is caught.
