jumper on the bridge and he was threatening to commit suicide on the anniversary of our nation's independence.
All was quiet--music turned down and voices were hushed as everyone watched to see what he would do. Some onlookers were terrified and others chided him to jump. I was just sickened by the thought that someone would be so selfish as to call for attention from the people enjoying themselves all because he wanted to end his life and didn't know how to ask for help. If he wanted to kill himself, he should do so away from the public eye and not in front of the many children that were playing in the area!
As the afternoon dwindled, we made our way to the bay area where the fireworks would be lit.
Once the show of fireworks had finished, the boats started exiting the lake one by one. It was such a neat parade. The night was still wonderfully warm so we were not in a rush to leave. What an AWESOME, AWESOME day! Thank you Don and Li. We had one of the best times in our lives!
