[Perspectives] Virtue in deficit: the 9-year-old hero

The bravest person I know is a 9-year-old boy. I came to know him by chance and his story profoundly moved me. I will call him Cain, after the impulsive and hot-tempered son of Adam. The Cain I know is also impulsive. He suffered extensive damage in utero due to prenatal alcohol exposure and was diagnosed with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). His birth mother, who was herself in care as a child, had neither the education nor the resources to refrain from drinking during pregnancy. Cain was taken into care at birth, but it was too late.
