Only God and Sam know precisely what compelled him to jump, but I suspect depression reigned supreme.
To the outside world, the man looked like he was going places. But what does the outside world really know? Nothing. Who does it really know? No one. Sam must've been feeling really low that day. News reports state that he was engaged in a seven-hour standoff with police and rescue workers before he jumped. Wow!
My curiosity was such that last night I actually hopped into the car and drove to the bridge to see it for myself. I parked on a residential street, then walked over the bridge. I could clearly see how easily a person could jump. But then again, if someone is bound and determined to do something, he can.
Actor/author Brooklyn Mclinn made a video the other night, sobbing profusely, as he discussed his friendship with Sam. And his deep sorrow that Sam didn't reach out to him, or to anyone, for solace. Brooklyn's words and raw emotion were palpable. I truly wish Sam had spoken to Brooklyn first.
Millions of people are hurting in this world. Hurting so deeply that they are on the verge of losing all hope. Interestingly enough, hope is the one thing that undoubtedly keeps me afloat when the world makes every effort to sink me.
The video below introduces SAM SARPONG to those who aren't familiar with him.
I wish the best for everyone and everything.

This past Sunday, in Lafayette, LA, my fave Texan, DENZEL WELLS, made his stage debut in Jeremy Cormier's Even A Good Man Is Tempted.
After we solved a contractual issue, the young fella had a BLAST!
He portrayed the lawyer son of legendary R&B songstress, Shirley Murdock. And from what she says on her Twitter, she adored him!
Denzel's super supportive mother had a dang good time, too! I'm sure seeing her son up on that stage was a true treat for her!!!!
God bless, DENZEL, SHIRLEY and JEREMY for getting the show up! Now, Jeremy can concentrate on his next move!!!!!! I wish him, the cast and crew the very best!

I see some incredibly passionate comments on social media made for and against LAMAR ODOM.
I've read a million times that The Kardashians and/or Kobe Bryant and/or Lamar's upbringing are partly (or wholly, according to some) to blame for his current predicament.
All I know is that I wish him well.
