The woman in the blue coat approached me by the United Nations building yesterday, and said: ‘There is an interesting man around the corner that you should photograph. I don’t know his name, but everyday he stands directly across from the UN, and says ‘God Bless You’ to everyone who walks past. I’ve always sort of viewed him as the conscience of the world.’
'Let's go together,' I said, and she agreed to bring me to where he was standing. When we finally found the man, I asked for his photo, and he cheerfully agreed. But he pointed at a nearby wall:
"Let’s take the photo under that scripture," he said.
not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.
Exactly. Which is why I’ll reblog this one.
And because I am a paranoid sort, I actually went and looked, and yes, real links.
reblogging this for the links. i’m sad to say i can’t be ‘here for’ my followers in the sense of answering asks or talking on IM. i just don’t have the spoons. my askbox is almost always closed. BUT i agree that suicide is preventable, and depression is treatable! i recently found an antidepressant that works for me and rediscovered what a joy the world can be. i want everyone else who’s depressed to have the same experience.
so pass these links around, and please remember, depression is a disease, and there is help and treatment for you. things WILL get better.
