Julie A. Dickson
They couldn’t hurt Aaron anymore, but he couldn’t move on. He lingered, watching over the weak, visiting his mourning family.
There would always be victims; Aaron knew this. As long as the gym teachers and cafeteria monitors conveniently turned their backs on what they were well aware of was happening; the abuse of the vulnerable would never end.
