The Small Thread

The Small Thread, fiction by Alex Forbes. In Writing.


Except for isolated observations drawn from personal experience, characters and events in this story are entirely fictional. Narrative on serious, life-threatening issues includes suicidal feelings, gay coming-out issues, firearms, and societal reactions to all those issues. The character “Patrick” narrates how he once faced a life-threatening crisis alone, and had no idea how accessible crisis intervention resources really were. Like a surprising number of people, he survived it alone, but others are not so lucky. If such an event should ever confront you or someone you know, we have today an abundance of dedicated hotlines and resources. One of these, for life-threatening crises affecting anyone, anywhere across the country, is 1-800-273-TALK.
