How's your day going?
September 21, 2017 4:10am CST
I got a call from my friend five minutes ago. She's on her way home now but her train suddenly stopped. Passengers were not allowed to get out. Announcements in Japanese were blaring over mega speakers but she could not understand a thing. I could sense that she was panicking and I told her to do step 1- breathe in, breathe out. When she spoke again, her voice was not shaking anymore. Her train would be one hour delayed. Somebody committed suicide, jumping on the railway. What a sad Thursday.

Oh dear so sorry to hear this for your friend..she must have been terrified. And the poor person on the track RIP. My day yesterday was not too bad at all my friend. Hope your day is perfect Sherlocked-San, my friend.
that got my heart beat fast .. I and the many commuters witnessed a young man got hit by a train and his head was dragged some meters away.. his brother picked up the head by the hair and ran as fast as he could and tried to re-attach the severed head on to the body... that happened nearly 40 years ago but I can still see it in my mind every time we drive through a railway track .. that experience haunted me for years .. and still haunts me every now and then.. something I need to deal with.. The sound of horrors from the onlookers was haunting ...
