Thank you Lane, so sorry to have been the bearer of bad news to you. I haven’t seen Dead Poets Society for a very long time. I am hoping they show it again soon because I do remember it as a spectacular movie. I think almost everything he did had something special to say to the world. x

brink of suicide.
Thank goodness that someone like
