Wow, first of all let me say hello to the readers here at BTS. This is my very first Thread on the BTS network and what better place to say hello than
the rant section..lol.. Anyway, lets get to the point. When was the last time you
stopped to ask someone for help? Hopefully, it is
often or when you can. Its basic kindness for our fellow man correct? But man what has happened to this kindness. The other day I was walking to the
doctors office and this lady infront of me opened the door (which is quite heavy) and I thought she was going to hold the door for me after she walked
in, but not at all. Before I know it the door slams against my arm when I saw it coming. She turned around, never said sorry or anything just kept
going. It was actually a little painful. But it was alright, I was like whatever. Well anyway, a little while later I am still waiting and I see this
women trying to open the door outside (she has a stroller and can't seem to put it at an angle so she can reach the door), so I opened the door for
her and she never said thank you or anything just looked at me like I was doing something stupid. But I was not going to let someone struggle, I was
just helping. After all its common respect correct?
Then after reading some things on the internet. I realized that help has been thrown out of our vocabulary and replaced with fear and selfishness. For
Woman dies in HOSPTIAL waiting room
Wait did I read that correctly? She died in a hospital waiting room. I thought that is where you went and they were supposed to HELP YOU!
49-year-old woman collapsed and died on the floor of a waiting room at a Brooklyn psychiatric hospital and lay there for more than an hour as
employees ignored her, according to the New York Civil Liberties Union, which on Tuesday released surveillance camera video of the incident.....
The surveillance camera video shows the woman rolling off a waiting room chair, landing face-down on the floor and convulsing. Her collapse came at
5:32 a.m. June 19, the NYCLU said, and she stopped moving at 6:07 a.m. During that time, the organization said, workers at the hospital ignored
At 6:35 a.m., the tape shows a hospital employee approaching and nudging Green with her foot, the group said. Help was summoned three minutes later.
Wow. Just wow..
Man hit by car on busy pedestrian street and NO one HELPS
A disturbing surveillance video showing an elderly man getting hit by a car and then being ignored by bystanders has shocked — and shamed —
many in Hartford, Conn......
Angel Arce Torres, 78, was trying to cross the street when a Honda plowed into him, sending him flying and leaving him lying crumpled and bleeding in
the middle of the street. The driver of the car did not stop; but, even more disturbingly, passing cars and people on the sidewalk nearby did nothing
to help Torres.
I'm not sure, but I would have gone out and helped this man. He's not some animal, he's a human being! This was sickening...
There are plenty more videos and stories, but I think al of you get the point. Infact I read a case here the other day in which a man fell and
twisted his anckle the police, ambulance and some passers by offered no help to him.
What is wrong with people? I know there are others like me who help people. I know most of us here enjoy to help people. But really, whatever happened
to us? Maybe you all should watch the movie pay it forward a couple of times. We really need to learn to help each other, even in the most simpliest
of tasks. I also know that even if you wanted to help the person you are trying to help may pepper spray the crap out of you, which I know all to well
about or do something stupid because they believe and have this amazing fear of people. But still help. Am I wrong? Anyway, tomorrow, open the door
for someone or do something for someone. Help out and I apprecaite the time you took to read this.
