Summary:
Most people believe they have a clear idea of what's right and wrong. Many say they know how they'll act to handle an extreme situation. But to be honest, no one knows. Not really. None of us truly knows what we'll do when a situation becomes so complex and overwhelming, when something you considered wrong morphs into something right. This is what happened to me. I thought I had standards. I believed in absolutes.

Abstract:

Most people believe they have a clear idea of what's right and wrong. Many say they know how they'll act to handle an extreme situation. But to be honest, no one knows. Not really. None of us truly knows what we'll do when a situation becomes so complex and overwhelming, when something you considered wrong morphs into something right. This is what happened to me. I thought I had standards. I believed in absolutes. Then my world turned gray and my absolutes became murky. Right and wrong dissolved into what I knew I had to do. Please don't judge me until you hear my story.

A high school diving champion develops bone cancer in this story told from the points of view of the diver, his best friend, his sister, and his girlfriend.
