A former classmate wrote that he was sorry for the way Wright was treated. He noticed Wright's smile in his Facebook profile picture.
“That's the first time I ever saw you smile,” he wrote. “It made me realize how much sh-- we all put you through, and I'm just glad you're able to find happiness now.”
But Wright hadn't found happiness. He's working with a counselor in Tulsa to learn better ways to cope with his depression and accept himself for who he is.
“All I want to do is to be happy,” he said. “That's all I want. It doesn't have to be blissfully happy every day. Just to be OK would be nice.”
