On Sunday, someone posted this at Post Secret saying they were going to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge. In response, someone created a Facebook group called Please Don’t Jump now with over 40,000 members. 

We live in an unprecedented world. I really hope this virtual support inspires this person to change their mind. It seems as if, in certain situations, the internet is developing its own consciousness and soul. This kind of loneliness and despair breaks our heart and we now have this emergent force of good made up of thousands to millions of profiles creating some new form of “therapy.”
