I had to cut off this little boy's hair. He has an auto immune disorder causing it to bald in patches ...he had tears in his eyes but took it so well, and his mom started crying watching him.
After he was finished he tried to smile, but cried again and ran to his mothers arms in tears and she held him...
Hes in 3rd grade, when kids are the meanest. I imagine he probably deals with shitty comments and cruelty.
I gave him my Sabretooth Xmen sticker off of my backbar and told him he looked like a little ladykiller, which got a smile.
It's amazing how much strength can be shown by such a little person...heartbreaking, but inspiring.
