Great story from the Boston Globe about two high school brothers who grew up in the struggling neighborhood of Dorchester, just outside of Boston. The brothers’ parents were divorced, and their father committed suicide in 2008. Their mother’s mental disabilities made her unable to hold a job outside the home to support the children. Despite these challenges, the boys worked their way toward success. Full story here. Worth the read.
