Growing up in a small town when you're a little bit different can be hard. I know this first hand. And kids these days, it seems, are more malicious than ever. So, it warmed my heart to read the story of Whitney Kropp, a sophomore from Ogemaw Heights High School in West Branch, Michigan. Some kids played a prank that could have wrecked her spirit, but the town has rallied behind her to make this an amazingly positive experience.
