Think about it.

This happened at 6.25 on the second day of Daylight Savings Time. It was still dark. The body clock of the student made this 5.25 a.m.

It is much too early for our students to be going to school.

That is one of the best solutions, that I have heard yet.

KTVU, channel 2, is doing a piece tomorrow about a guy who was talked out of jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. Ten years or so later he is now a changed person and spends a lot of time working with suicide prevention groups.

I think we should get him to come and speak to Gunn and Paly students.

It seems to me that our students have "got the message" that suicide is an option and dealing with that idea as being a bad idea should be a way forward. This guy, while having had a completely different set of problems, is a true survivor with tv video of his attempt and change of heart. His face should be what all students think of when they feel suicide is a solution.

Can we get him here?
