Rising Above It
Darryl Williams died yesterday at
46. A Boston high school football star paralyzed by a sniper's bullet in
1979, five years into the fiercely-fought desegregation of the city's
schools, Williams never gave in to the hatred that felled him, writes a Globe
"I made peace with my situation long
ago,'' Darryl said. "I understand where hostility and ignorance come
from and I'm able to rise above it."
