When you see the tissue with blood spots in the picture below…what does it reminds you of?
Would you think about innocence lost? Loosing virginity?
Perhaps you should not go that far. It’s just blood spill. And blood spill would mean that someone is hurt and in need of help, and instead of imagining things or just do nothing, one should think of offering help instead or ask if that someone is all right or not.
It’s human nature to be curious about things that happened around them. For an example, typical Malaysian would stop their car by a roadside just to watch an accident instead of helping out.
There would be so many spectators during accident that they would cause the road to be congested. But seriously… how many of those spectators are helpers? How many of them called an ambulance or police when an accident occurred? How many of those spectators are the members of St. John Ambulance or the Red Cross but did not offer any help just because they are not wearing their uniform and think that it is all right and nobody would know that they are one if they never say a word?
How many, you tell me? How many of you thought of extending a helping hand to the traumatized victims instead of busy snapping pictures so that you can blog about it or jot down the registration number so that you can buy 4D or toto later on? And how many attempt to talk to the surviving accident victims and ask if they needed to contact their family and inform them of what had happened to them?
I don’t have the answer for that. I was once a victim of an unfortunate accident once, and not many extended help. Instead, many are busy snapping pictures with their camera phone or busy creating stories and speculating on how the accident happen.
Each time I see a tissue with spots of blood like this… it would remind me that someone out there might be hurt and in need of help, and if would do good if each and every one of us keep in mind that we should extend help to people first when they needed it, not do other things that will benefit us at the expense of other people’s life or misfortune.
