Life is scariest when it feels hopeless. In those moments, we all need someone to reach out and remind us that it gets better. Every 40 seconds, someone takes their own life. We can take action to prevent that last resort for so many people, like how this bus driver reached out to a total stranger to help her reconsider an irreversible decision. Times like these remind me of the good in people and that we must support and look out for each other always.
