i started thinking about what i would do on my many travels if i saw a body on the side of the road. would i stop to investigate. would i stop to help. would i want to get involved. would you stop? think about it. could YOU drive by a body...possibly alive, and just keep going. could you live with that? i don't think i could. but then you think...if i stop...i could be implicated in some unforeseen involvement that was totally innocent. do i want to take that chance of being a suspect in something that i am nowhere near involved in? but what if i can help. what if i can really make a difference in a murder mystery. what choice do i really have. and if the person is alive...i could possibly save this person's life and make a difference.
do you think i may watch too much TV? do ya think?
but really...saving someone! how cool would that be? not only would you save that person, but you would be saving their family from so much pain! AND possibly helping catch some asshole who is going around doing whatever they are doing to destroy people's lives. so....the down side is?? i don't know if i can come up with a downside...except fear!
sometimes i almost want to see something that will cause me to make that 'on the spot' decision, to see where i would go with it...because you never really know until it actually happens. when people tell you "oh...you should have done this, or you should have done that"...unless you have actually been in that exact situation...don't tell me what i SHOULD do...because you have no idea! and i, personally, would never know until i am right there, on site, dealing with it. in ANY situation.
so don't ever let people tell you what you SHOULD do in any situation. until they have lived it themselves...they are no experts. and even then, no one can ever have the same experience you have in your own body and mind at the time you have it. it's yours alone...and yours to cherish!
and the moral of the story is...look straight ahead and keep your eyes on the road...because if you deviate...you may encounter unsuspecting circumstances that could change your life forever. but then again...those life changing events...could be the most life shaping events you will ever experience.
