Michael was an odd guy. Full of boast, bully around school and mouthful.
Francis the opposite. Quiet, participative in school, and kind.
A lot of people don't like Francis since his brother is known to be unkind and a bully
This resulted in Francis' loneliness but he doesn't even know the reason people avoid him.
Just because Michael is a bully or an unkind person, doesn't always mean his brother is too. This has led a lot of people to misjudge because of blood-related people. Everyone is different in their own special way. Yes, we could still be influenced by our everyday surroundings but not everybody. Everybody needs to see the holisitc point of view in every situation to fully understand what that situation really is.
