“Charlie Brown’s Lament,” “Lucy Freaks Out,” and “Peppermint Patty and Marcie Lead the Parade.” Schulz honored Zwilich and the concerto with the second mention in a strip published on March 16, 1997. I had a rough childhood by any standards. By the time I was 12 years old, I was seriously contemplating suicide. I was fortunate to come across two large Peanuts Treasury books. Those books got me through some awful awful times. In the darkest moments, it was laughter and being able to relate to a scared, insecure young character like Charlie brown that got me through things. Charles Schultz was and is a true hero to me.
