in their shoes?

A conversation from Wednesday, during my lunch period.

Student 1: "Do you ever just cry for no reason?"

Student 2: "Yeah, I think it's good for you because you can get all your emotions out."

Student 1: "One time at home I punched a hole in the wall, and I just started rubbing my head and crying. My mom said I've been so different since my dad died."

Me: "When did your father die?"

Student 1: "He's been dead for 10 years. He got killed when I was eight years old. They shot him right in front of me. They shot him with a .12 gauge in the head. He was in the car, and all that was left was his shoulders and neck."
