Dead Woman – Business as usual
What has happened to the human race, have we become so self absorb that we can no longer become our brother’s keeper.
The news reported in the media that a woman was found dead in 24 hour McDonald’s in Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong, and that diners were unaware that this homeless woman was dead and they just simply continue to enjoy their meal, really give me cause for concern.
It would appear that we are so caught up in our own lives that we no longer care about those around us, we no longer stop to give our fellow human being a passing glance unless they have done something that directly affect us.
There was a time when we were our brother’s keeper when we would take time to treat each other with respect and dignity. Nowadays, it seems that we have moved so far into the technological age that the only thing we care about is how expensive our mobile phone is what is the latest tablets we have and the human part of us is slowly slipping away as we engrossed ourselves in this technological era.
One would have thought that if we witness another human being slumped over a table our first instinct would be to rush over and inquire whether the person was o.k., but to leave them for hours and find that they are dead, and they simply clean and disinfect the restaurant and back to business as usual just demonstrate how far remove we are as humans.
