There was only one movie I saw that ever moved me. It was a DVD that someone’s mother gave me as a birthday gift. It was a Disney cartoon, but it wasn’t about princesses, singing lions, or some shit like that. It was about this kid named Jim. No one understood him until he met this guy named Silver. Even though Silver was supposed to be the bad guy, he believed in Jim. He saw the good in him when no one else did. There was some science fiction shit with aliens, and robots, and planets that blow up. And even though it was set in outer space, it had old-style sailing ships. Still, the cartoon moved me. It showed that no matter how big a loser you are or how worthless you feel, you can still be a hero. I wanted to be a hero. I wanted someone to believe in me too.
Why didn’t Mrs. Cimino give me a book like that?
I sighed and continued my walk to my Explorer, where I would sleep alone.
