    I Hated

    There are many reasons why a person might grow to hate something. These five people each felt justified in their hatred: 

    David Mann watched countless men mistreat his mother, leading him to have an intense hatred for other men.

    Ashley Rawls never managed to have a proper relationship with food and so grew to hate her own body 

    Brian Sumner got married thinking he understood what love was. He soon found that he couldn’t stand it. 

    Ken Hutcherson was taught early that white people will never give a black kid like himself a fair shot in life.

    Jessica Long was adopted from a Siberian orphanage with major leg deformities. She learned to hate everything life had dealt her. 

    Totally unique, but united in their message of overcoming hate through love.
