In high school (and Junior High), I was a lot like Screech Powers from TV’s “Saved By The Bell”. I was a nerdy free spirit who was just trying to get along with others. The thing about people like Screech they just want to be accepted for who they are without having to be someone they are not. Wearing your heart on your sleeve does come with a price, unfortunately. Screech was a role model if you think about it. Dustin Diamond who played Screech Powers passed away today from lung cancer at the age of 44. Way too young. See you on the other side Screech. It’s alright because we are all Saved By The Bell. Rest in power, Dustin.
