 Oh God l can't even tell this story and not cry
 I used to manage an LGBT bookstore, when
 bookstores were still a thing. One night, a
 caller says he thinks he might be gay and is
 considering self-harm. We were not a crisis
 center!
 But as long as we're talking, he's safe, right?

 So l talk to this guy and I answer questions, and I try to be encouraging and I'm
 maybe sounding a little frantic and I'm definitely ignoring the 4-5 customers in the
 store, and this angel of a woman puts her hand on my shoulder and asks for the
 phone
 "My turn," she says

 And SHE, this 50-something lesbian talks to this stranger on the phone. And a
 LINE FORMS BEHIND HER. Every customer in that store knows that call, knows
 that feeling, and every person takes a turn talking to that man
 That story comforts me so much to this day
