At the suicide prevention workshop

At the suicide prevention workshop today, I played the part of a troubled teen, apparently with such fervor that one woman spoke of me as the "kid with the hoodie" (I wore no hoodie). When the instructor started speaking to me, I said, "I do NOT like to be pushed." After walking to the back of the room, I spilled two cups of cold water on my feet and then almost ran into a Sgt. Chen in the parking lot on the way to lunch. It's been 40 years since I was that teenager, but today she and I shared a few minutes of intensity.
