I woke up and heard the news that a college student jumped off the 20th floor of a university building. I was saddened by the news, for such a young soul to go so soon. However, when I opened my social media account I was disappointed to see and learn that some people are throwing nasty remarks about what happened to the person (whatever happened to humanity) . Then I suddenly realized that maybe one of the reason she got to her limit was that no one dared to listen to her when she wanted to disperse her emotions that was piling up inside. Everybody wants their opinion to be heard, but no one dares to listen to others. She might be thinking why bother? That could have made the difference, the indifference that was shown.
Our world could be a lot more better if we spent more time listening than talking. Just listen and you’ll know. Just listen and you might save a life.
