1. The stranger who sat with me
I sat on the ledge of the bridge. I didn't jump, or wearily look at the water from behind the safety of the railing. No, I just sat there, wondering what to do. I can't remember how long I sat there, my feet dangling, leaning my head on the railing. Sometime through all of this sitting and staring off into space and thinking, someone came by and sat beside me. No words were said, no demands for me to get away from the ledge, no ridiculous lectures about how I shouldn't kill myself. Just silence as we sat and stared and thought.
