Helplessness

I went through something two days back that I have never experienced before. I saw more than 50 sad faces in a room. As the number of sad faces decreased one by one, the sadness on the other faces increased. They would clap and applaud the guy who gets out of the abyss(genuinely too) and then get back to their abyss. As the number reduced to 25 or so, I saw some tears... some grown men and some girls too... i could only watch and encourage but couldnt do anything else about it.... i was incapable of helping...
one guy walked to me and said with a straight face that I should get him out of the abyss by hook or crook. I couldnt lie to him... I told him I was helpless and the sight of frustration and anger on his face remains etched in me.
Tried putting a +ve spin of things on a few people and it did help a few but I couldnt be my usual self. Today, the count is less than a dozen, ppl keep coming out of the abyss slowly... they have learnt more than me, gone through more than me and i must admit that they are stronger than me... well, I was upset when I was among 110 left in the abyss... These guys remain strong though only a dozen remain with them.....
Kudos guys... I learnt a lot in the last few days
