Being 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.
CUT Some 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 brother’s deadly 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!
