Should We Help Strangers?
A proverb says “You may be happier than princes, if you will be more virtuous.” Helping strangers has always been considered as a treasured virtue of mankind. But nowadays, people tend to be cautious of strangers because of the frequent occurrence of blackmails after offering help to strangers. Some are even unwilling to do any good deeds as they think helping others involves risks of getting hurt or cheated.
Who should be blamed for turning blind eyes to those in need? Is it the moral declining of the whole society? Its real reason lies in the lack of necessary protection for those warm-hearted people. In addition, the corruption of social mores, and bad influences of negative cases have worsen the problems.
Just keep in mind “Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful.” Don’t hesitate to help others. One good turn deserves another. Accordingly, government should work out a Good Samaritan law to protect those who reach out to the strangers in need.
