“The importance of the seminar for the Liceo de San José was to make everyone present not listen to negative thoughts. It was taught that, when these thoughts arise, we must be more resistant so that we can win and move forward. The school teachers themselves told us that, last year, they had some suicide incidents and that this lecture will surely help everyone to overcome these thoughts of death”, he says.
