Fun fact: notice how I use 'google' instead of 'jesus' or 'god'? It's because when I was young, my mother asked me not to use 'jesus' as an exclamation as it could be construed as blasphemous. I do not share the same beliefs, but that is no relevant. She asked nicely, and it doesn't hurt me in any way to oblige.
Also, information is my religion, so google is sort of my Gabriel.

Think it will go better for Annie this second time around? The first time kiiiinda went to hell pretty fast.

Understanding, allowance, and a second chance. We all could use such providence, not just Annie.

Sometimes I wish I had her courage... And, on occasion, I like to believe I do. Hopefully, soon, courage won't be necessary. Keep up the great work! I am inspired by every comic!

@Fallrain: As FDR said, "All we have to fear is fear itself". At a certain point, when we lose our fear of doing things and just DO them, our fake courage turns out to be the real thing.

How long do we have to go before what we pretend to be true is actually true? If we act as though we have control, and walk as though we have confidence - where does the line get drawn that we actually are in control? That we actually have confidence?

Thank you for joining us on Annie's journey. I am honoured by every person who is there with us.

@GreenKrog: "Think it will go better for Annie this second time around?"

If she enters school on her own, perhaps slightly better.
If, on the first day at least, she enters school together with Lexi, I'd hazard a guess at significantly better. Not only would Lexi be the proverbial security blanket, but some individuals would probably be less likely to call out if she had company - not to mention there'd be significantly less chance of her "accidentally" tripping over or "falling" into a locker.

Good for you Annie. When you have nothing to loose that is when fear disappears, at least that was my experience.
