John Affleck what do you make of this line?

I actually love that line. Nothing in this boy’s life indicates that anything good will happen, that the bullies can be beaten, that all his suffering actually means something — that somewhere out there somebody will one day even the scales. Also, it’s clear that the church is an “alien rite” to him, so his lack of faith isn’t that surprising. Which makes the miracle all that much sweeter when it comes.
