Woman Talks A Man Out Of Suicide With Linkin Park’s “One More Light”
Last week, while driving along State Road 408 in Orlando, FL, healthcare worker Christina Settanni saw a distressed man sitting on the side of the bridge. “I didn’t really think about stopping, but I thought as I saw him in my rear-view, I probably should stop, especially since no one else did,” she told Click Orlando. “I stopped because I’ve been where he is. So I know what it’s like. He needed somebody to show that somebody cared, and tell him he didn’t need to do that today.”
In an effort to console the man, Settanni went on to quote the lyrics from Linkin Park’s “One More Light”, which, if you don’t know, go a little something like this: “Who cares if one more light goes out? In a sky of a million stars…Well, I do.”
That’s… actually extremely wholesome. After Chester Bennington tragically took his own life 2017, the song was released as a single and has become an anti-suicide anthem of sorts, “I didn’t know if [the song] clicked with him, but he just cried,” Settanni concluded. A police officer captured the moment on video, which you can view below. And remember — always check in on your friends, even if they claim everything’s fine. You might be doing more for them than you could know.
