To the HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of drivers who drove by the accident this morning on 280 north of Foothill Expressway—did you think twice about it? Did you even wonder about the woman clearly still in the front seat of her car, airbag deployed, engine spewing steam, fluids leaking everywhere, front end totaled? Did you even think of stopping to see if she was okay? What was so important?... What’s more important than people? It doesn’t take training to say “Are you okay?” “Do you need help?” “Everything’s going to be alright, I won’t leave you.” I wish I could say this is the first time I’ve come upon an accident and helped and saw that no one else ever stopped—or even the second time or the third. Why don’t you care enough to just find out if that crying, scared, confused person is okay? What if it was you? Why do Good Samaritan stories have to be so rare? We should be overflowing with them. Is this what humanity is now—too busy with your latte to even call 911?
