Walking across the freeway overpass, I saw you dangling precariously from the bridge just south of PSU campus. From one hand, you gripped the arm of a woman who had desperately given up, but you cared enough to put yourself at risk and save her while others looked on. Who knows hows long you were struggling there but I wanted you to be recognized somehow for your compassion and bravery. I didn't get your name after you saved her and the police arrived after all your efforts and hope you hadn't gone unseen. I saw you, and you are amazing.
