Dear Mr. Joel,
It has taken me 30 years to write this but I am now. When I was 15 life was hell, plain and simple. I planned how to kill myself and was going to do it the next day. Then I heard your song Second Wind. Needless to say, I didn't do it and it is because of that song. Thank you so much for that. I now have two children. They are both on the autism spectrum and my 14 year old son, in particular, is a HUGE handful. Sometimes those feelings of ending it all have resurfaced but I know what to do. I listen to Second Wind and move on. I am sure your music has had an impact on everyone who hears it but I just wanted to let you know that it saved my life then and still does. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!
