...rather the lack of it. Feeling for others..rather the lack of it.
Everyday I see people who are either walking or driving with zero road sense. Everyone is trying to outdo the other in driving like crazy or the pedestrians walking or crossing the roads as if they are the only ones using the road. But over the time I've also kind of gotten immune to this. But what I will never get immune to when people do not give way to an Ambulance or Firetruck and sometimes even a Police car when their siren is on.
For police car they give way out of fear but for Ambulance and Firetruck I have seen it almost next to never. Today also I witnessed this scene while driving to work in the morning when a Firetruck had the siren on and was trying to weave through the traffic. No one was giving way to the truck. Everyone was literally ignoring it except a few sane ones. And forget about giving way, they were trying to use it to their advantage when any sane person was giving way to the truck by butting in front of the firetruck.
Seeing such nonchalance to things of such importance shows again and again how the people are so selfish and self centered. All they think about is for themselves. Did the thought of the people stuck or hurt in the fire where the firetruck was headed towards ever strike them? No. If it had they would have given the way. And they call themselves as literate people. The illiterate people will have more sense than these people for sure.
And above all after behaving like this people complain that help never arrives on time.
I prayed to God that may these people be stuck in a situation when they need the help of ambulance or firetruck and may it never reach on time. And then they will realise what they had done for others has happened with them too.
And I also pray that the people realise and learn sooner than later and start to value the lives of others too.
