A Salute?

For those who don't know, I've been in and out of therapy for years for, amongst other things, PTSD. However, I didn't begin until my 50's because of the stereotype that "real men don't cry and admitting to a mental health problem means you're weak." I bring this up for a reason. Earlier this week, Carey Price stated, in an interview, that the reason he'd been in the player assistance program was to deal with a mental health issue. I applaud Price for his honesty and the courage it took to make a public statement like that. Maybe a few people who wouldn't have sought help before will, now. Maybe, if I'd had someone like Price as an example, 40 years ago, I would have sought out the help I needed before I negatively effected so many people. Perhaps the Jackets can assist in spreading Price's example with some sort of video salute when Montreal plays @ NWA.
