Lifeboat on the wall? A symbol or still in use. I do not know. But I do know that there is a profound meaning in it. We all need someone to save us, at some point in time. It may be more of a spiritual or mental help when we have bad times or it may be real physical need that we have. Each one of needs it, whether we admit it or not. On the other hand probably all of us also are the ones doing the life-saving at one point or the other. It may not even be obvious, but a couple of right words to a stranger may mean much more to them than you will ever know..
