Disconected

Last night as we were driving home, there was an accident on the highway. It was just before an on-ramp to a freeway and cars were just passing the two cars involved as if they couldn't get by fast enough. We stopped to make sure the people involved were okay and that 911 had been called. I couldn't believe the several cars that passed before us hadn't bothered to stop at all. Granted, they could have called 911 from the road. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt on that one. This same situation occured in "The Amazing Race" where Rob and Amber didn't stop when they saw their fellow racers had flipped their hum-v. What is it with us? Are we really so disconected that when we see tragedy right in front of us we don't stop? Where are we racing to so quickly that we can't take a few moments of our time to call for help? Do me a favor, the next time you see someone in need of help just give it. You'll feel better, the'll feel better, and it'll make the world that much better of a place. :)

I guess that has a lot to do with the area in which you live, doesn't it?
Oklahoma is still full of people willing to stop and help as I am sure lots of places are.
