Don Ritchie, i met him around a year ago on pure coincidence, having known of him through a friend.
For those who do not know of Don Ritchie, you may recognise him by the name: “Guardian Angel”.
Don Ritchie is a man who for over 50 years has watched over a cliff known as: “The Gap” the most notorious suicide location in Sydney, the worst in all of Australia with local residents suggesting that at least one person a week has attempted to commit suicide in that location.
However, this a majority of the time prevented by Don, and his voluntary service to watch over the lonely and desperate people who attempt to leave the world. To date Don reckons he has saved over 160 lives through personal assistance, and witnessed many more deciding better, and leaving.
Yet many do leave, however, upon meeting him i thanked him personally for being able to save my friends life. Three years ago my one of my friends attempted suicide at that very spot, whilst Don did not push into his personal life, he offered my friend to come to his house and talk things through.
Today marks the three years in which my friend attempted to end his life, thankfully he is still around today, all because of this man who asks for nothing in return, but the preservation of life and happiness.
It is Don who gave me the reason for caring so much, to understand that many need it, not necessarily anything major, but someone to talk to, someone to care.
And i do, still to this day, with everyone i meet, as many of you know.
To those who do not know me well, i always offer this, there is only one time where i am not contactable, and that is in 80 or so years when my time has come.
Until then you may ask for any assistance. Any whatsoever.
It does not bother me, no matter what you think.
I do it because i care.
There is always help.
The slow *glug glug* occurrs as i lift it higher.
Tumbling down the long dark hole, a fireball created as it progresses deeper, moving through other such vessels spreading coarsely throughout the dark complicated tunnel system warming as it emerges to never seen places.
A sense of giddyness, happiness, idiocy, and a supreme feeling of Invincibility.
Nothing can stop me now.
The *Thump thump tump* increases in pace, the warmth now spread throughout the complex tunnel system. Whilst within that appealing artificial warmth, a cold darkness emerges. What is real?
The answerable questions appear, increasing ever so frequently…
Invincibility to uncertainty… what will emerge as victor?
The slow warmth, or the rapid cool darkness camouflaging with the dark complicated tunnels that pre-exist.
*Splash, splash splash*
“Wake up, can you hear me?”
A worrisome face emerges from the darkness, a friendly face unrecognisable in this delerious state.
I am loved.
And so are you.
Hey all, just thought i should post something completely random, this was the work of my fingertips going crazy (not an actual situation although probably having occurred to someone). I thought i should post something decent since you guys haven’t been getting anything from me lately… ;)
