"I read a book this week about a little boy who wore an astronaut helmet to hide his face. It gave him the chance to be normal and he relished it, he used to play in the park and the other children would not look. In the end he no longer wore that helmet , and instead it was his own face that made him a hero to others. It was sad and beautiful, and these reminded me of that story."
