"Why Me?" is the story of Dallas, a very active and impulsive little boy who feels that troubles follow him everywhere. Because of the many problems that occur around him, he asks "Why Me? Why does everything always happen to me?" After falling off of a swing at school, Dallas ends up in the hospital with a broken leg. He feels sad because of his "bad luck" and is afraid that all of his friends are mad at him. Through the kindness and wisdom of an elderly man that he meets in the hospital, Dallas begins to realize that what he thought was "bad luck" is really the natural consequences of his own actions.
