Last night we stopped at a hotel in Oklahoma city after a long day on the road. I was exhausted, but I couldn’t sleep, so I was outside the hotel room sitting on the floor on the phone with a friend. We had just hung up when this girl walked out of her room at the other end of the hall. She was crying really hard, so I walked over and sat down on the floor next to her.
"Are you alright?" I asked her.
She shook her head no, I asked if there was anything I could do.
"You wouldn’t understand." she said as blood started seeping through the sleeve covering her arm.
She had hurt herself.
Rolled up my sleeves, showed her my scars. 
She put her head on my shoulder and cried.
We cried together. 
I got her up and took her to the bathroom and got my first aid kit, stopped the bleeding, bandaged her up and then made her a cup of tea.
We talked for almost two hours.
We talked of school, of the stress she was under, of the way her parents were hurting her with the words they said. 
We talked about silly things, serious things, everything.
I don’t know how old she is, I don’t know where she’s from, I don’t even know her name, but I do know that she’s going to be alright.
she said I saved her life.
