Sorry this took so long….
“The other day, on my way to get dinner after work, there was some man beating on a lady in the street. She was screaming!! But While that was horrible, what was worse was that people just watched them. No one ventured closer to help stop him, no one called the police, nothing. (I think that’s a common syndrome in public crimes though.. You should Google it) I actually had to call the police myself. This was on Thursday night. First encounter with the law for me, first time I saw police cuff a man, first time I saw a woman being pummeled”
Television sometimes makes real events seem like fiction: for this reason man is desensitized to the inhumane actions carried out on fellow flesh and blood . The era we find ourselves in is one where violence, sex and nudity has become a part of our social culture. These vultures have now made nest in our society and have gotten the approval of the leaders of industry who not only endorse these acts but also use them to their advantage . Political thuggery, extortion and blackmail through sex are some of the acts that have found a common place in the day to day life our leaders. But should this be so?
No man wants to loose a daughter, nor a mother a son, but you find that this same man would cradle snatch his fellow mans daughter just to fulfill his vile fantasies. This same mother would mistreat the son of another woman that has been put under her care. It amazes me mans ability to rationalize right from wrong whenever his moral compass is put to question. This self righteous man always seems to find an excuse in his heart to defend his action or inaction.
Though The short story above is an eyewitness account of a young Nigerian woman leaving in the United States, who Observed this beating that took place last week on the streets of a particular city in the US. It tells a tale of such a genre of people who literally look the other way when another is in danger these are our modern day Samaritans who exist in every other society around the world. I sometimes wonder if truly man understands the value of life and the concept on the 10 commandments. Loving God alone would not take one to heaven but also loving your fellow man and treating him with a measure of compassion. This I believe is a major requirement to accomplish this desire of ours.
“Inaction is as big a crime as committing murder ” we need to find our inner voices and reach deep to reconnect with the conscience. this must become our deepest desire if indeed wish to accomplish anything worth celebrating …….
