On our way to Quaker Meeting on Sunday morning, as we were on an onramp, we saw this–passing the man’s car on the onramp just moments after he jumped to his death. We were fairly sure it was a suicide, but tried to minimize the situation because we didn’t want to freak out the kids.
I found it difficult to concentrate during Worship after having passed this scene. While I respect the difficulty of a suicide choice and I don’t want to trivialize or sensationalize this incident, my heart just aches knowing that someone was hurting so badly.
