Amy wasn't the type of girl who you would expect to have an alcoholic parent. She was honor roll at school, has a boyfriend, and volunteers at the local homeless shelter on the weekend, but her dad was an alcoholic. She was sitting in US History, the lesson on being Prohibition. She could't help but think about what a better place the world would be if people didn't drink alcohol. Her fantasies were interrupted when the bell rang. As she was heading to her next class a group of girls were gossiping about her. "I heard that Amy's dad gets drunk on the weekends." one girl said. "Maybe Amy gets drunk too." Replied a second girl. A chorus of giggles followed. Amy knew the rumors about her getting drunk wasn't true, but she ran into her next class in tears.
