Here is a simple uplifting story about humanity. First, a stranger sees a dog in the middle of a raging river, a mere inches from being swept over the falls. He trudges thru raging water, risking his own life, to save this dog. Of course, when he reaches shore, he finds it impossible to get up the steep banks. Next, three and then four strangers form a human chain to rescue the human and the dog.
Joe’s Perspective: It is my firm belief that people are good. And yet again, we find another example of human beings proving me right. Most people with the ability to help in this situation will do so. Not all, but most. Here, we see complete strangers coming together to do the right thing. Why? Because at our core we know right from wrong. Inherently, we know it would be wrong to walk away when we are able to contribute something to the situation. It’s called having a conscience.
Your Turn: If you were one of the passer-by’s in this situation, would you have the ability to help and what you have done. Explain.
