The Trip Back – The Story of Florrie Fisher

The Trip Back tells the story of Florrie Fisher, who had a rough life, but fought her way out of it all and would eventually become a public speaker. She would travel to schools and try to warn kids about the choices she made. All her speaking and public appearance led to this PSA, The Trip Back. Which summarized her story.

I watched this when I was a kid on our local public television station one night and if you have seen it once, you will not forget Fisher. So when the TV series, Strangers with Candy, premiered on Comedy Central, it did not take me long to figure out that the main character of that show was very inspired by Florrie.
