This Is Depressing... And Uplifting

Here is the story of a young black man named "JR" who attends New York City's Urban Academy and will be graduating at the end of this semester.

What makes this story somewhat depressing is the fact that JR has had to live in a variety of homeless shelters with his father since he was nine years old.

What makes this story very uplifting is the news that JR has been awarded a full-scholarship to Connecticut College.

When he arrives at his college dormitory this fall, JR will finally have a bed of his own.
