Richland Library partnered with the Harriet Hancock LBGT Center to offer training on how to question, persuade and refer individuals that may be at risk for suicide. Eileen Schell, Physician Liasion, Richland Palmetto Health, gave an hour long presentation with question and answer time at the end. Mrs. Schell was able to help the audience learn what type of questions to ask an individual that could be suicidal. And more importantly the questions you shouldn't ask. The presentation was based on QPR which stands for Question Persuade Refer.

I'm so not cool anymore. I stopped trying. When I saw Molly Ringwald playing a mother of teens on a TV show, I knew I was doomed. But with the help of the Brat Pack and a few other classic performances, I think I can redeem myself... as long as I leave the acid wash in the closet.
And did I mention the totally awesome (yes, I said it!) music? Bangles, Cyndi Lauper, Banarama's "Cruel Summer", The Pyschedlic Furs, Simple Mind's "Don't You", and Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes."
Do you remember which of these quotes came from which of the movies?
