“When I was in my darkest place, I thought the world was so evil. But now, seeing that there is good in the world … I’m gonna do my best to make this world bearable for everyone,” Smith said.
Smith is seen here at a family function as a teenager. He dropped out of high school when he was 17. He says he couldn’t take the emotional abuse from other kids and retreated into his parents house. “I’ve had like sticks and stones and dog feces … thrown at me and [I've been] spit on … that makes you feel, you know, not human at all.” (Courtesy David Smith)
