But it was in one particular school, when Gary was informed of the recent tragic suicide of a twelve-year-old student, that he realized there was a crisis at hand and that he had to try to do something about it.
Inside these pages are stories based on true events. Each deals with topics and situations that came up while speaking to students: bullying, peer pressure, dealing with grief, consent, social media and, tragically, suicide. He concludes that the young people today are not ‘moody and rude’ as often portrayed – they are simply trying to navigate a fast-changing, high-pressured world while feeling very unsure of themselves.
These stories will give the reader some food for thought and a different way of looking at, and dealing with, certain situations. Hopefully, this book will also spark much-needed conversations between young people and their families, friends, teachers and others.
Above all, Gary wants everyone reading this book to realize that they do not need to be perfect – instead, they should look in the mirror and say out loud, ‘I Am Enough!’
