A few years ago I was working with a middle school youth group. During a discussion they expressed the pain they felt on a daily basis. These students felt that everyone they saw was fine, and that nobody understood what they were going through.

My goal with this project is to show that it does not matter how strong one may appear, everyone is human and feels pain. “Painless” will articulate to youth and adults that we are not alone in times of pain. It just appears different in each person's life.

My hope is that this story is relevant to all.
