I like to think deep down people really do want to help others, especially when it is morally correct to do so.
During the floods here in 2011, I stood shoulder to shoulder with complete strangers from all walks of life who just wanted to lend a hand to those
who had been affected. It really makes you think there is a little hope left.
The problem, to me anyway, is not so much the desire to help, but how that desire is perceived or interpreted by others.
Usually wanting to help is met with suspicion, doubt, or even hostility, due to the fact that for every person that wants to help these days, there
are others who wish to exploit or even hurt others. It is a sad side effect of the way the world has become. We have become so ingrained to mistrust
the intentions of others that it is hard to switch that mistrust off and accept sometimes people just want to help because they can.
I think we need to be the change in the world we want to see, not what the media wants us to believe, and the world could surely be better. Just my
