If a small boy lives, does anybody care?

before reading
Looking back on my notes, this story was supposed to be a fun story of a boy stowaway with no particular skills, but a lot of heart. Apparently deciding that that was lame, Creative Voice wrote a super-depressing story about an abandoned boy who gets screwed by life. OK, then.

after reading
...the fact that the story is really short is, when you think about it, even more depressing. This is a very well-written story, though, and I know for a fact that Mr. Editor had nothing to do with it. Except for the very last line, where he inserted himself, and thanks be to him.
