Comment of the Week

“I once walked a man off the Golden Gate bridge who was going to jump. I happened to be there just killing time before meeting some friends for dinner. I noticed he was distressed and behaving oddly (obsessively looking down at the water, not the gorgeous views). I chatted him up, walked him to a bench on the South end and sat down and listened to his tale of woe for about 40 minutes then gave him a ride to BART so he could catch a plane. I suppose the skills were just paying attention and empathy.”

–Incredible!
