    Sometimes, I Can!

    I am told often, that I can't help everyone. Some people need professional help and I am not a trained psychologist. True! I know this... yet... I am stubborn sometimes. I can't stand to see a fellow human being, drowning! I just have to throw out a hand and try to help... even...

    When you need some help they usually left. Its good to help others. When you are in trouble, expecting he or she may help you. Usually they dont want to do so.
