Surprised

I was surprised that no one stopped

Surprised that no one said anything

Surprised that no one was willing to help

He was holding himself up on the walls of the building outside

It was cold, he was not dressed for the weather, his cloths were old and dirty

He looked like he could have been homeless

Does that matter?

No one stopped, no one said anything

My husband walked up to him, asked if he was ok, he was disorientated. My husband asked him to lower himself to the ground before he fell down, as I called 911.

Everyone kept walking by

My husband just talked to him, the man found out I called 911, he got up slowly and stumbled away.

EMS arrived, we told them which way he went.

I’m surprised that no one stopped

Surprised that no one said anything

Surprised that no one was willing to help.

  1. It’s sad to see this happening where people care less of others. A minute or two won’t be that much to stop and find out how we can lend a hand. We need more people like you and your husband in this world.

  2. Wow! I love this slice. It draws attention to such an important issue. Standing by. I see it everywhere and have been guilty of it myself. So glad you guys were there AND took action.
