There is hope.

Thank you for posting this story, Jack. A timely reminder of what really matters.
The link doesn’t seem to be correct; it goes to a story about Tyerell Przybycien.
There are two links. The first goes to the story about the suicide being halted. The second is the story I already posted about.
Yes, thanks. For some reason the first link doesn’t appear any differently from normal text on my phone, but it is clickable. The last sentence makes more sense now!
I am confused. The link goes to a story that is anything but hopeful….
I’m having no problem with the link. The link is the underlined “this” in “read this.”
Thanks for posting this. It did brighten my day. You don’t have to have any special training to do the right thing. You just have to be willing to reach out to a fellow human you see is in distress.
What I see is “here” in blue, which links to the Przybycien story; that’s probably what Rich clicked too. “This” doesn’t appear underlined for me viewing the post from my phone. Thanks for pointing out that it’s a link. A good story, indeed.
On mobile, “Read This” appears as black text without underline.
Thank you, Jack, that’s a lovely story.
I especially can relate to it. I have lost three clients to suicide, and it is amazing how guilty it makes you feel. What else could I have done to prevent this? Probably nothing, but it just shows how a single, caring, non-professional approach can help.
Nothing like starting your work week with crying…. Thanks Jack — beautiful story.
