Oh God I can't even tell this story and not cry.
I used to manage an LGBT bookstore, when bookstores were'still 2 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 I 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
“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.
