Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: The sheer cliffs at the mouth of Sydney Harbor have long been a popular Australian suicide spot. But they’re about to get a lot more deadly — the local man who is credited with talking at least 160 people out of killing themselves since 1964 died this week.
Window-watcher Don Ritchie, known as the Angel of the Gap, could spot the troubled ones from his home across the street; he’d wander down to the cliff-edge and calmly ask, “Can I help you in some way?” More often then not, he could. He’d chat with them a bit, then invite them back to his place for a cup of tea.
“My ambition has always been to just get them away from the edge, to buy them time, to give them the opportunity to reflect and give them the chance to realize that things might look better the next morning,” Ritchie once said. “You just can’t sit there and watch them. You’ve got to try and save them.”
“Cain said to the Lord, ‘My punishment is too great to bear! Behold, You have driven me this day from the face of the ground; and from Your face I will be hidden, and I will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.’But the Lord said to him, ‘Not so; anyone who kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over.’ Then the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him.” [Genesis 4:13-15]

A character study of the angels
we took moths and placed them with glass tubes that nipped them in the center and watched them grow. their abdomens expanded, they developed their full grown bodies, the glass a delicate cinch, like a lady’s waist. and we watched them grow around this abnormality, watched the little moths grow to big moths. carefully nurtured them, watched their wings with their shifting colors, noted their designs and the precise alignment of each fine leg.
“Home is behind
The world ahead
And there are many paths to tread
To the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight
Mist and shadow
Cloud and shade
All shall fade
I am never ashamed to admit I cry during this part.
AND SUGAR WE’RE GOING DOWN SWINGING
I’LL YOUR BE YOUR NUMBER ONE WITH A BULLET

South of Eden
The year is 2018, and the world has been in peace for nearly five years since The Winchesters and The Angel, dubbed Team Free Will in the Gospels, defeated the Leviathans and then disappeared off the face of the planet.
But in that five year peace, they unknowingly left a trail of crumbs to three individuals that everyone seems to have forgotten.
Walking well under the radar, Ben Braeden, Dean Winchester’s maybe-son, is beginning to have nightmares of a world that feels too real for comfort. But having just started his sophomore year in college and his school counselor telling him it’s all just a result of stress, Ben lets it go and tries to move on. That is until he meets Claire Novak, a woman who seems to know everything about Ben and even more about the dreams he keeps waking up from.
Without much reluctance, Ben leaves school and sets off with Claire and her partner Jesse Turner, who’s got an agenda of his own, to figure out what his nightmares really mean.
But neither of them realize what they’ve started or the evil that they’ve shaken loose. And like a flame being lit in the dark, they quickly have become the center point for everything the Winchesters and The Angel weren’t able to take care of.
Together they must figure out how to decipher the clues being dropped for them while at the same time, protect themselves from everything that wants to stop them. All the while learning that sometimes the Gospels aren’t wrong, and maybe, just maybe, family really doesn’t end in blood.
