These teenagers from Sxoxomic School at Alkali Lake are displaying a handmade quilt (made by Irene Johnson) that they signed and presented, in the way of thanks to their school guidance counsellor, Patti Murphy.

Murphy was the driving force (or guiding hand) behind the students, all members of the Sxoxomic Youth Suicide Prevention Team as they worked to produce a powerful movie called, In the Blink of an Eye — which focuses on issues facing youth on the Esketemc First Nation Reserve at Alkali Lake.

Pictured here are seven members of the 13-member group (left to right): Roland Dick, Franklin Johnson, Serena Jack, Shaylynn Robbins, Lone Wolf Peters, TaNisha Rosette and Justice Dan.

The premiere showing for the community was held on Wednesday evening in the school gymnasium.
