I'm with you Birm, good on the Grimes family. It's easy to get swept up in the year-round madness that is recruiting and forget that not only are these real people, they're teenagers with families and friends like we all once were. I can't imagine all the pressure they face on a daily basis from schools, extended family, and outside influences. I doubt I could have handled it at that age.
Edit: so, this is weird but I tried to put quotation marks around "extended family" above and when I did I got a page that said "You have been blocked. You are unable to access elevenwarriors.com." And it said it was because of the site security. None of my other quotations marks appear to be an issue, so maybe it was the quotation mark following the comma in "extended family," that caused the issue. Ok, nope, it works in this edit but not in the comment body. Weird.
