Fourteen. What happened to the age of fourteen? Today seems to be a day for the number, since it's come up twice.

A British court sentenced a sixteen year old boy to life for the killing of a fourteen year old acquaintance.

And I learned today that a fourteen year old girl just told her parents that she's pregnant. She'll have to miss the ninth grade and be homeschooled. She says that her mother and her father hate her. They're not talking to her. Not since she told them.

And I'm so sad. Because fourteen is so goddamned young for all of this. For any of it.

I have never felt so old before or so powerless to protect anyone. Even myself.
