At the End of Everything
How do you feel fear? Do you freeze as the world around you slows to a blur? Do you run, hoping that your feet can keep up with the ground beneath them long enough? Do you fight either to protect yourself or those around you, ignoring the consequences of bruises that will last days after the fear stops? In the Hope Juvenile Treatment Center, knowing how you feel fear is synonymous with staying alive. Fear is taught on day one of being inside Hope, with guards that snap like twigs breaking off in the wind. That is, until one night when all the guards disappear and fear takes on an entirely new name.
