Wow, what a look of determination on this young man's face! And it appears to be much more than just a fleeting expression, but rather an indication of deeper countenance and character of indomitable spirit mixed with no patience for suffering fools gladly or otherwise. I can see already his character showing through, indicating this a boy not to be trifled with, nor taken advantage of--or there will surely be consequences. Thank you so much for sharing this photo!
