In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Why am I here? Alone in the dark, outside and separate. Is it supposed to be this way? Sometimes I have to wonder, because no matter how hard I try I remain cold and alone. Am I a dark angel cast out, forever searching for acceptance where there is none. Perhaps I'm an alien, for no matter how hard I try fail to understand the people I see everyday. Why do they fall in love? Why do they kill each other? It makes no sense to me for I am outside ALONE"
