Jumper

The office administrator sent around an email regarding traffic congestion here downtown. Someone at the intersection of Spring and Alexander is on a ledge somewhere. On the verge.

People are going to the windows here in the library to see what they can see. Some streets are blocked off. Helicopters are milling about.

I don't think I could do a final dramatic gesture. I guess I'd just want to go to sleep and never wake up.

Please...whatever it is, it can't be worth your life. You want to kill the pain, not yourself. You can't escape the pain of life...but not all life is pain. Please. Please.

This is tough to read about after last week's train almost-suicide here in LA... I agree with you, milady. Just give me a big bottle of barbiturate, and I promise not to get publicity or take anyone else with me.
