    Based on something that has actually happened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9bKeBCBxKs

    And: http://newsfeed.time.com/2010/06/07/can-post-secret-and-facebook-save-a-life/

    I was so moved, I had to make something. I'm probably going to draw too.


    Yellow Balloon

    ----

    Drove to the Golden Bridge
    My life's already on the ridge

    Got out of my car
    Didn't have to walk far

    I saw someone I didn't know
    Holding a yellow balloon

    The stranger had a marker in hand
    I didn't think about it then

    Today it will be all over

    I didn't belong anywhere
    Never thought anyone would care

    Stepped to the edge
    I couldn't believe it's come to this

    I stopped mid-step
    I just couldn't believe it

    Riding on the cold wind
    Was a yellow balloon

    It read:

    "PLEASE DON'T JUMP"

    ----

    So, what did you think? There's another part I was going to add, but is it better to leave it short?

    What happened in real life was even greater. Over 2000 people made posts begging this man/woman not to jump.

    Thank you for the comment. :)

    Maybe everyone does...even if it's someone they never met.

    I mean, most users here don't know each other and we still try to help. <3
