Hello. How Are You?

Four words or less could make a world of difference.
I just heard the sad news that a colleague of mine took his
own life over the weekend. My initial reaction was: why? I
guess my reason was that we both work for a company that is
fairly stable in this economy, his life was full of energy on

sickness I had survived a few years earlier. My family was
aggressive with testing and we diagnosed it very quickly.
I keep wondering, what if I had said those four words, would
it have led to me sharing my survival story and would she
still be alive now? I will never know the answer to that.
However, you can! Not the answer to my question but you can
say those few words and you never know; it may just save a

seem, 1, 3, 4 or more words may just bring back a life or
