Bekka is a Bay Area-based high school student. I’ve been reading her blog for a few months. It’s clear she’s a talented writer and an even more talented photographer. Her posts blend a mature self-awareness with a rebellious artistic flair. Yesterday, out of the blue, she posted about her struggle with alcohol. Titled "Walking the fine line between self-control and self-abuse," it is an incredibly poignant entry which, when accompanied by the photograph she took of herself above, produces a stirring, somewhat saddening effect. Having lived through an alcohol-soaked high school social scene myself, I can attest to the fine line’s existence, and the unfortunate reality that too many kids are on the self-abuse end of the spectrum.
