“I stopped and asked him if he was okay”
The Humans of Dublin’s Facebook page is a page that shares photos of people and their stories.
I will never forget this particular image for the message it leaves behind. The image above is of Jamie Harrington. His message will truly inspire anyone who reads it.
Jamie shares that he had once prevented a stranger from committing suicide by simply asking him if he was okay.
Humans Of Dublin shared the one evening Jamie spoke with the man sitting on the bridge:
The most beautiful news is that the man, who one contemplated ending his life, is now having a baby boy that he and his wife will name Jamie.
…those few words saved his life. That they’re still ringing in his head every day. ‘Are you okay?'”
We hope that this article will inspire you to not be afraid to reach out to anyone who needs to be asked that one simple question.
“Are You Okay?”
