Yesterday evening, I stopped to help a driver that had broken down. For a moment, fear entered my mind. It flashed by and then I drove up and rolled down my window to see if they needed any help. It was night with no moon. Their blinkers were on as they waited by the side of the road. “No help needed”, the man uttered, “we are waiting for a tow truck”. He thanked me. I felt good and neighborly. I thought, “this is what good Samaritans do”. But where had this feeling gone in recent years? And replaced with a tinge of fear? When I was a kid, we stopped and helped a man with a flat tire. Was my father fearful that we could have been hurt or robbed? We traveled cross country and broke down, but never feared. Cars flew by as I repaired my car and walked to get parts from the local station, but never in fear. Was I just naive, or has the world changed that much? Everyone, let me know your thoughts on this.
