    A man wanting to jump off a bridge in London, talked round by absolute strangers who proceeded to hold him for an hour until help arrived to get him down safely. Look at that grip. Look at the care, compassion, selflessness & determination shown by complete strangers to a fellow human being.

    There is so much more good than bad around us, just sharing a little of it. Wishing the man a full recovery.

    That's wonderful ❤️

    Something similar happened in a Toronto subway station last week. A guy went into the station and jumped down onto the tracks. A Toronto Transit Commission fare collector saw this happen and went to comfort the guy and talk to him until help arrived. (The TTC worker had the power to the tracks cut first, and notified the TTC control centre.)

    A nice reminder of humanity.

    Though it looks like he might well be lashed to that bridge for the rest of his life.

    2 people held him. 200 others were live streaming it j/k
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    Ohio family adopts 6 blood siblings who didn't want to be separated


    FOREST PARK, Ohio (WCPO) — When Christopher and Christina Sanders became foster parents, they made a deal with one another: Regardless of how many children came into their home, they would do what they could to keep existing families together and not sentence children to lives of being shuffled between different households.
    They kept that promise Thursday when they officially welcomed six new children — all blood siblings who wanted to remain together — into their family.
    "We were having a rough life (before)," 13-year-old Caleb told Judge Ralph Winkler in the Hamilton County Adoption Court.
    "And you feel like you're in a safe place now?" Winkler asked.
    Caleb nodded.
    Caleb and his siblings Coby, Christian, Caylee, Carson and Chloe were adopted Thursday morning into a family that also includes the Sanders' five biological children.
    It's a significant expansion — one that has the couple searching for a 15-passenger van to transport all of their children — but for the children, it's a dream come true.
    "She's the sweetest sister ever and I love her so much," said Caitlin Sanders of the newly adopted Chloe.
    And it's not just the parents improving their children's lives: Christopher Sanders said his new children have had a strong positive impact on him, too.
    Although it's easy to tell that the children are not all blood related — Christopher and Christina Sanders are black, and their six new children are white — it's also obvious that they're as close a family as anyone could hope for.
