Got mine, BT!
Just to let you know…
Back in the early days of the internet, when I really got hooked into forums and chatrooms – I met a young girl from Ireland. She became pregnant by her old married man, but she had miscarried. (Good thing, really.) But she wanted to commit suicide because he really took her for a ride.
I sat online with her nearly 36 hours straight; just keeping her company and assuring her life was worth living. Once she convinced me and herself that she’d be okay – even sending me pics of where she was – Well, let’s just say it was worth to go through whatever I could with her.
Shortly thereafter, in another chat room and another young girl, from Philadelphia, closer to home, pregnant by some asshole from New Jersey, who was talking her into an abortion she didn’t want…
Well, on this one, another long session that day, I convinced her to go to see her grandmother, who didn’t know she was knocked up, yet the only person she could trust – And call me collect when she got there!
She actually did. And she talked to her grandmother with me on the phone. Grandmother wouldn’t talk to me directly, as she didn’t know who I was – No biggee!
But I did hear her tell her grand daughter to thank me for getting her over there!
I heard the crying; I felt the pain. But for whatever it’s worth - no pats on the back for me, thank you very much – It is worth it!
So do whatever it takes, man!
Keep asking your better angels for guidance and strength – And may they help you and your friends!
I’d say keep us posted, but well, the mere fact you asked for help is a great big step in the right direction.
I’ll just end here with a simple:
Peace & God Bless!
