Have you ever stopped to help a fellow human or do you avert your gaze?
I just had to go to a store in a strip mall and there was a person curled up against the wall, apparently passed out, near the door of the State Liquor Store.
People were walking by, glancing and then ignoring.
As I was starting to walk toward the stores, an expensive SUV pulled up near the walk and an older, well-dressed woman jumped out and hurried up to the person asking “Are you alright? Do you need help?”
As it turned out, it was a high school student who collapsed from an asthma attack and it was his bad luck that it happened by the liquor store.
I was ashamed of myself for making the same assumption that others were. I’m glad that there are people in the world who will stop. It made me think hard about myself.
Honestly, what would you have done?
