I am appalled at how people have become so afraid of getting involved that they would just pass by. A few weeks ago, I heard the news about the toddler in China being run over, not once but twice, and no one helped her out. The toddler is now dead.
A lot of people saw it happen and yet no one helped out. They say its called the bystander effect. I don't understand and I don't believe it. I will never ever just watch as someone is harassed or abducted or is in an accident.
I am not a saint. I am not even overly good but I do have some humanity in me, enough to care about other people; yes, even a random stranger.
Please, get involved. A lot of people have died (like Kitty Genovese) and been abducted because we refuse to be involved. Let's start to care again and be humans. We are humans and these people need us. Who knows? One day, you might be needing help as well.
