Do I believe that most people that were put on this planet are good, wholesome people who would give someone else a helping hand if they needed it? I do. I might be naïve in thinking that the average stranger is a good person who would give up their subway seat for an elderly person or expecting mother, but that’s just the way I feel. I want to believe that there’s more good than evil in this world, and that together we can take little steps to make it a better place.
I would hope that someone would react if they saw that someone in my family was in danger. And that’s exactly what happened at a park playground in Lakeland, Florida, this week. But what happened next will absolutely blow your mind. It really does seem that we are losing our trust and faith in humanity.
