THE BRIDGE IS OVER

This all kind of all started with a documentary that I got to see that disturbed me to the point that I had to visit a place that I haven’t been to for over 20 years.

For the most part, the Golden Gate Bridge is a tourist attraction that parallels such things as the Eiffel Tower and the Statue Of Liberty. You never think anything more than that really.

But unknown to most, this is the number one spot for suicides in the US. I don’t usually geek out on things like this, but I find it fascinating that this whole thing is literally happening in backyard.

Can you imagine the psychological torment that someone puts themselves through as they walk this path? Wondering if you can go through with it or even just wondering if it is worth doing.

I don’t want to get into a long rant about suicide (a very debatable topic to say the least) but I think if anything, this whole thing just put awareness into my eyes about something I never really knew.

If you think this video is your cup of tea and feel compelled to view the whole movie, click here.
