Al was Sean’s alpine ski coach, Sean wrote this draft as a public speaking project in high school. His performance was inspiring. As his parents we were so proud of his message and his gift of charisma. (I was always jealous of his natural grace in front of an audience.)
Sean loved Al, and Al helped Sean immensely in high school and even after, reaching out to him frequently.
Sean Blake, my son was 27 when he died from an accidental overdose. Sean was for kindness. Writings, poems, and posts to keep his spirit alive. His story is shared to heighten up awareness of the effect of mental illness and substance use disorder.
