I could be the hanged man (as yet unhanged, happily), or the dog-walker.
Right on. I will have to think of some times when this has happened to me.

Thank you for reading and sharing your experience Shawn Schmid! You captured perfectly the ideal of our shared humanity in personally sharing from your own family experiences. We all, at some point in our lives both stand at the abyss and reach forward to pull others from the edge. I truly believe it is our empathy that has the power to save us if we can cultivate more of it in ourselves and others. Namaste!
