Student’s story an inspiration, well told

Eric Stevick’s article about Nick Eveland brought me to tears. (July 21. “Alone no longer”) Nick’s story is an inspiration; Eric’s delivery of it is incredibly touching and award-worthy. I send my best wishes to Nick, who has proven to himself that he can do and be anything/anyone he wants, and my gratitude to Eric for describing Nick’s world in such an understandable, compelling way. Thank you for sharing their gifts … even if they made me cry.
