I'd do the same things personally, it's just very rare to see others doing them, you have to admit that?

Maybe it's where I'm from. Maybe it's how I was raised. I don't know but I don't think I can count the number of people my brother and I have pushed out of the snow, or times I've stopped to let a cat walk across the road. And I hate cats.
I didn't see a single thing in this video that you shouldn't just do for someone else, because they're people. I've been on my way to job interviews and seen accidents/broken down cars/people just generally needing a little help and I've known that I'll be late if I stop, but I always stop anyway. Not because I want a reward or a thank you, and furthermore it's not to get stars at ATS, but I've always done it because they're people. It doesn't matter if you know them or if you like them, if you can help, you should.
How is this foreign?! How is this idea novel?!
I've seen people criticize my faith, I've seen people criticize the region I come from because of its general conservatism, but if the rest of the world (the world without faith and an enact semblance of remaining conservative thought), that's not a world I want to venture in to. My "world" may move a little slower but if your "fast pace" doesn't allow for treating people like... people, I'll never want any part of that.
