To Whom Ever You May Be

I want to thank the old man who walked across the bridge 2 years ago. I have no clue who you are. I don't know your name, where you live, or even what you look like. All I know is you saved my friends life. You probably don't remember. It was an ordinary day, like anyother. You were walking across a bridge, probably just like any other day. You saw a young boy who look sad and lost. He had his hood on and he was just looking around. He made eye contact with you so you smiled and noded like you always do when someone looks you in the eye. And then you walked on. You probably went home to your family and had dinner just like any other night.
But you didn't know. You didn't know that that boy was suicidal. He was looking around, trying to find the best place to jump off the bridge without making a huge scene. And then he looked up, and made eye contact with you. And you smiled at him. He was confused and taken by suprise. Then he turned around. He turned around and went home. He went home and realized he no longer had the urge to take his own life.
You saved him. And that is why I am thanking you, whom ever you may be. Thank you for saving my friends life.
