The Story Steve
Harmon, a sixteen-year-old African American teen

Henry David When Hank
wakes up in Penn Station, the only clue to his
identity is the book he’s
clutching, Walden,so he
adopts Henry David Thoreau’s name and
iconic work to guide him on his journey to
self-discovery.After a stabbing ends his brief
stint as a homeless teen, Hank flees to Walden
Pond, where he meets Thomas, a gentle park
docent, and bonds with a girl, gifted singer
Hailey. His festering knife wound forces him to
confide in Thomas and accept help, but Hank's
pleasant discoveries (he’s
good-looking, a runner and a musician) are
overshadowed by returning memories that evoke
dread and shame. What’s driven
him, Hank realizes, is desperation to escape his
past, not to recover it.
people think everyone that cuts is just plain
crazy. Do you think they even know the reason
that a person would subject to cutting? I don’t think
so. In her inspiring novel, Cut, Patricia
McCormick tells about Callie, a soft-spoken,
shy, fifteen-year-old girl. Callie is suffering
with personal problems, which include her
asthma, her parents, who are growing farther
apart, and now the budding conflict in which,
Callie cuts herself. She knows not to cut too
deep and not cut more than one or two lines per
arm, what she is dealing with is her problems or
“reasons” for cutting. She has no idea why she
does it until she is admitted to a mental health
facility, Sea Pines.

VOLUNTEERS We could really use your help!
Please reach out to friends and neighbors.
Sometimes the neighbor-to-neighbor request is
the most powerful. Pleading and getting down
on one knee may also work. All kidding aside,
this is serious. Use your influence. We'll be
making some calls to folks who have even slightly
expressed an interest. Please do the same. And
if some of you who have stepped away for a bit
can return, that would be awesome!Thank
you so Much!
