I regret

Sometime last week at work i ran an errand to the 6th floor of the building, as usual i took the stairway all in d bid to loose weight (lol)

On getting to the 6th floor i ran into this blind woman shes a staff of the company and she was on her way to the toilets, i was coming down the stairs and i saw her trying to manoeuvre holding the hand rails and her walking stick at the same time while trying to go down the stairs
i was in a hurry to pick something from the 6th floor i had a passing thought to assist her but i just decided that she was probably used to doing it herself and left her there.
Immediately i left her i forgot that i had even seen a blind person and went about my business when i was through on the 6th floor on my way back up to my floor, a guy accustomed me on the stairway and asked me if i knew who usually assisted the blind woman on that floor as she fell seriously while going down a while back...
i felt so guilty even though i was'nt on that floor but i regret that i did'nt help her when i did all just cos i was in some type of hurry, it would'nt have taken me a minute to help her but i just disregarded it.

Moral: we take a lot of things for granted and its wrong, it pays to help when you can. be your brothers keeper.

hope your week's been great.

poor lady...

But babe, we all make mistakes and all we can do is learn from them. You clearly have and by sharing this post you have taught us all a healthy lesson.

Hope all is well, though.

OMG...this is so sad...
A few days ago, I saw a woman who could not walk (ie if she tried to, she was in pains) and she wanted someone to help her charge her phone. I pretended like I did not know wat she wanted. I ignored her. As she was going, she really sprained her waist. I felt so sorry but more full of regret that why could I not stand up to help her...lesson learnt.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
