DREAM - ADVENTURE - UNKNOWN - PRESENT - HOPE - DISCOVER
While I was driving along the way to treat myself a nice dinner at my favorite restaurant near Russian Market after I finished self-quarantine for 2 weeks (sorry for such a long introduction), I was a guy in his 50s volunteering to help with the traffic was asking a carrot from a passenger in a bike with a cart full of carrots. Kindly enough the passenger gave him more than 2 and even handed the middle age guy a plastic bag to take more carrots.
I was so moved and realized that sometimes the kindest people are the poor. It not how much you can give, it is your willingness to share.
Be kind :)
In the summer of 1943, Lara and a friend ran away to join a partisan unit, where she became a scout. She collected information about the number of German soldiers, locations of gun emplacements, and participated in the “railway line” war, derailing enemy trains.
In the fall of 1943, the 14-year-old girl was seized by the Nazis during a scouting expedition. During the interrogation, she tried to blow herself up with a grenade, which for some reason did not explode. After being severely tortured, she was shot by the Nazis"
Just 0.2 Second missed, there would not have been the road accident on 10 August 2020 at 13:15.
The car driver missed calculating the timing when there is a motorbike took turned in front of him that he would not hit the bike. The enormous consequences is the car actually hit the bike and the girl on the bike.
I was in the car with my colleague, her husband and the driver and rushed back to the office to the usual busy day. At the time of the accident, I was looking at the side car window without my glasses on so I did not witness the actual accident myself. But, I vividly remember the scream from my colleague very loud saying that "please help the girl, please help the girl", I turned around and saw the victim.
My brain went to freeze mood and did not know how to handle the situation. There were the victim, my crying friend who was too shock and the standbys who all tried to help the victim. As such, I tried to protect my friend who stood in the middle of the road and there might be a thief taking her purse or jewelry and I observed the situation on how to help. So I came to my sense and I told the standby and help the victim that. "please take her phone from her back and try to call her family members or friends" but as foreseeable the phone was lock and the victim was awake but was still in shock to do anything. So my friend called the ambulance and things got better so we left.
It took me daysss to get my emotional right and moving on from what happened on that day.
Why did he rush for that 0.2 second?
What can you do with that 0.2 second?
What I should have I done to be more helpful?
What if I knew first aid?
What should I learn to handle better next time?
these probably are things that I need to figure out and I will take my time.
