A Real Perspective Builder

November 15, 2011

Several years ago, I met a man who came to speak to the people in the office where I worked.  He came to tell us that he had survived an attempted suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge.

He told us of the darkness he felt in his life, his drug and alcohol dependencies and all that led him to the bridge.  He then told us of the thought that he had at the moment that his feet left the bridge and he was airborne on his way to expected certain death*

“There isn’t anything broken in my life that I can’t fix, except this”

*This happened quite a few years ago. While I don’t remember his name, I’ll never forget him and his story.
