Dreams of Travel
Two young girls on holiday decided that they would go and visit the local dance hall. While they were there a group of young men under the influence of far too much alcohol began to have an altercation with a young who seemed to be having a great time dancing. It seemed very obvious that he was very popular with the girls in the establishment dancing one dance after another with so of the very beautiful local girls.
Not at all happy about this three or four of the lads worse the wear of drink set about him. They were punching and kicking him and he was crying out for help. Nobody came to his aid all taking the same attitude as the two friends who had gone dancing.
The next day the two were shocked to see that the young man had died that evening in the local hospital. Not a single person had lifted a finger to offer assistance. It had nothing to do with them.
The two girls felt terrible that they had watched and done and said nothing. One of the girls was so moved that she vowed never again to stand back and watch while somebody was in danger or trouble.
A few years later seeing a car accident it was she who managed to pull an elderly gentleman from a burning car while others stood looking. She had made a promise all those years earlier and now somebody was alive because of it.
Apathy is a terrible thing. The most dangerous thing about apathy is you don't have to exert yourself to show you're sincere about it.
How often I hear people say that they just do not care about politics or any such thing. The trouble with such apathy is that if we take that attitude to life then we can be sure that we will be governed and ruled by people much worse than ourselves. Such is the way of apathy
There is a company who print designs and posters. One of the other things they are well known for are those stickers that you often see on the back windows of cars. So many of them purport to be funny sadly I seldom find them at all amusing. I did laugh though when I was told they were now producing blank ones for all those people who just do not care about anything.
Go on and smile and have a thought filled day. is it going to be a good fun filled day? I am not sure, maybe I just do not care.
Have a good one.
