    "This world is cold
    But you don't
    You don't have to go
    You're feeling sad, you're feeling lonely, and no one seems to care
    Your mother's gone and your father hits you
    This pain you cannot bear...
    Hold on if you feel like letting go
    Hold on it gets better than you know..."

    Since then, it has become an iconic landmark of San Francisco and, tragically, one of the most popular places in the world to commit suicide.
    Few know this better than Kevin Briggs, a sergeant with the California Highway Patrol who has talked hundreds of people out of jumping."
