I feel terrible for the couple who recently decided life wasn’t worth living so they decided to jump in front of a train; however, I feel equally as terrible for the people on that train who were forced to take their lives for them. I’ll bet this couple, along with many others in the past ho have decided to commit “suicide by train” never gave one thought to the others their choice would affect.
These engineers and conductors are forced to play this tragic role many times during their careers. It has deeply affected many of them, to the point that some of them can no longer do their jobs.
People need to be more aware; trains aren’t new to us, they run on tracks, it takes them the length of a football field to stop, and there are human beings running these engines that have feelings and emotions just like you do.
