Have you ever struggled with your self-image?  In this story, a young boy named Caleb did nothing but smile.  That was until the day that he came home with his smile turned upside down.  It was then that his dad knew that something was wrong.  Caleb eventually tells his dad about how some of his classmates were talking about his skin and hair.  This turned Caleb very bitter to the point of hating them.  How do you think Caleb handled this situation?
