It’s quite cold in the Midwest and the East Coast. I’ve been somewhat oblivious to it, living in Northern California. And yet, I’m a Midwestern guy, spending the bulk of my life in West Lafayette, IN and in Chicago, IL. I’ve spent some of the most brutal winters ever, living there.
I watched this video through my Facebook feed, amazed how for two hours standing on the sidewalk with no coat in the bitter cold, this young boy received not one single person’s help. The person who did finally help knew what it was like to be in the predicament the boy was in.
I ask myself, what does it take for each of us to help another? What are we willing to give of ourselves to others? Why do we not help, especially when we can?
If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you’ll end up doing nothing for nobody.
It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.

Note. a friend of mine posted on my Facebook wall that this ‘experiment’ may have been a hoax. The questions above are still good questions to ask of ourselves and our society.
