The next story i read was about a young female nurse who reportedly took money from a 105 year old male nursing home patient.
Be honest, what was your first reaction when you read that bold sentence?
This girl's face was plastered all over the internet in the news. so many people called her trash and were ashamed of her. So many stones were casts from blaming it on her meth habit to her just being that kind of girl because of a photo she took a friend who was posing punk style and flipping the camera off. No one had anything good to say about this young lady. Everyone judged her, tried her and convicted her instantly. Where is faith in humanity here? When i read this, I felt sorry for her, for her family and her friends.
I guess that makes me the odd one out. That was my instant take on all the ugliness. IF the girl DID steal from him, what was the reason? Obviously, she needs help, not ridicule. The point was.. we didn't know if she really did steal or if he gave her money or loaned her money. No it isn't wise or right to take anything from someone that old or in that shape. Maybe she didn't know better? Maybe she did but needed it badly. The point is.. her accusers did not know the details but were so ready to pass judgment. They saw the accusations against her and they assumed the worst and believed her to be worthless..
i can't help but wonder if maybe I'm the one who needs help because i always defend the underdog. Not defending as in excusing but rather trying to understand and give them the benefit of the doubt. Do you find yourself passing judgement on people quickly? Or do you always see the other possible side? Do you have faith in humanity?
