In a world full of screens it’s rare to find a teenager playing outside. Now, they can use video games to score goals touchdowns and all sorts of things. The great outdoors gets more and more neglected each summer. Every once in a while you come across a kid who just doesn’t seem like he or she belongs to their generation of electronics. They have their heads buried in books, ask profound questions and actually take a moment to look beyond their smartphone. These kids are an inspiration to everyone around them. Luke Thill is a 13-year-old teen who is absolutely a needle in a haystack.
