In one of those articles, someone had asked whether “people had forgotten the art of caring, forgotten the need to help“
I was thinking about that when the article that detailed out the recent blast in Delhi caught my eye.
This is what happened.
Two guys in a moped drove past a busy area and what looked like a package dropped from their bike while they sped off. A 9 yr old boy, seeing the package drop went forward to pick it up and return it to help. That package was the bomb. When the boy lifted it, it blew up, severing his head from the rest of the body. The boy was thrown in the air and fell several feet away.
Needless to say that 9 yr olds life came to an abrupt ending.
Now you tell me, if getting blown up is the end result of trying to help someone what would anyone WANT to help? If getting killed is the result of caring enough to do the right thing, why would anyone do it?
I still believe that the art of caring or wanting to help is not dead.
