I am taking an ethics class. If anyone hears of a story in the news that shows good ethics--people doing the right thing--please let me know. Please include a website if possible so I can read the whole story, too.
But I became a part of a Good Samaritan modern day parable just the other day. I drive taxi. I was having a busy day because of a recent snow storm. I had just finished a call when I got a immediate call from some female college students. They asked if I could come right way.
When I arrived, there were three female students trying to help two young men who were mobility challenged--one was in a power wheel chair, the other was very crippled. The two young men had set out to go to the local bus station, but had gotten stranded because of the snow. These young women called for a taxi and even pre paid the fare the one man who needed to get to the bus. The other man in the wheel chair said he could get back to his dorm. They gave me a $10 bill, but the fare was only $7. I gave the change to the young man.
Getting down to the bus station, the man I took still had to navigate over some snow berms. I asked him if I could help him and he gladly took my arm allowing him to navigate over the snow.
So, in the story of the Good Samaritan I found myself playing both the donkey (careful, shar) and the innkeeper of sorts.
The day before I had first seen the young man in the wheel chair. He was trying to get on to the street but was prevented from doing so because of a thick four foot berm that was also about four feet thick. I saw four young men digging a path through the berm for the man in the wheel chair.
Both men remarked on the kindness of strangers. Seemed like I witnessed two episodes of paying it forward,
