The boy in the overalls

The other day I had something on my mind, a situation we had just encountered with someone we had sought to help.

When those things come to mind, I ponder.  I turn them over and over, thinking on human behavior and the stark facts of life.  Downhearted, I sank down on a step of the stairs in the foyer as I studied on the situation.  My eye fell on a framed photo of a boy, about 12, who is clothed in worn overalls and a raggedy dark-blue shirt.  He is sitting in a straight-backed wooden chair, which is leaned slightly against the aging walls of a mountain shack.
