"If you can't believe everything you read should you write everything you feel?"
Average typical nice sensitive guy from NYC born and raised. I just want a place to escape from the world and be somewhere where nobody knows me and I don't have to pretend to be anybody for everybody.
You live here long enough you get to see just about everything in NYC. I once saw a man jump in front of a subway train. It was the day before New Years Day I was on the subway train he jumped in front of, the train came to a screeching halt but it was too late. As we exited the train I looked back and it just looked like a bunch of crumpled bloody rags under the subway car. I thought to myself what could have possesed this man to take his life, what cruelties have befallen him that he could not find his way out of with out other recourse. I thought of his family ( if he had any ) or what the last thing any one ever said to him. The holiday season brings out the sadness in some people the loneliness and despair. I’ll never forget that day for as long as I live. I try to think if I had the chance to talk to him what would I have said. I think it has made me a better person I try to think of other’s and how they are coping with whatever situation they may have and how I should be more understanding and thoughtful and if possible make them smile and feel better. Not everyone has a family or a joyous reunion to look forward to but we can always do our little part in making someones life just a little better.
