Would You Help A Stranger?

It seems in today’s world humans, at times, don’t want to get out of their comfort zone to help people.
Whatever happened to people caring for one another.
Too many times people just don’t care, don’t want to get involved, have someone else deal with the person’s dilemma.
It is should be stated aren’t we all complete strangers until we get to know each other?
We should care for each other. That is what’s wrong with the world: not enough people who care.
If we’re cordial people doing our beneficial deeds for the day, that should count for something.
It’s a shame some people don’t appreciate help at times in their lives, but it still gives you a pleasant feeling that you have managed to make a difference hopefully to someone’s life in some way-however small.
