Do you think we should step up more often than we do to help or lend a hand or save a life?


Did you hear or read about the toddler son starving to death when Mother died from overdose? One report said no one else lived on the floor to hear the baby's cries but I first heard a man said he did hear cries and felt really horrible about it but of course he had no way of knowing the facts. Doesn't that make you wish we could check on folks without fear?

    That is true; but 911 can get mean if it is not a legitimate call and in cases like this it could just be a crying baby; that's what many of them do. Too bad family members did not check on them sooner too.

    I understand; we do have to use a judgement based on what we see around us but it is very natural. I don't have peace about this but probably I would be someone who would call the police; they would say none of your business lady with same results.

    I think it is fear; pure and simple and I do kind of understand that, The world is a dangerous place; especially today.
