Charles loved snow. Where we live now is a giant hill in Forest Hill park and he’d beg his Dad to take him to that hill. As I go by there now, I remember how much he loved it.
I also remember visiting him at the Family School, a therapeutic boarding school in Hancock, NY. When we got there all the teens were sledding down the hill having a ball.
One of the administrators, America, a tyrant and their least favorite person, came out and demanded they sled one after another in a single file line like third graders. It was utterly pointless. Just another example of how troubled kids are often victims of people on a power trip. As soon as she went back in, they went back to sledding like normal kids. He must have been 18 then. Thank you Marianna for this one.
