Hey, for once I'm going to write about something serious in this diary entry! Yeah,
I'm astonished too. :O


I travel to and from school by train. It's just one stop on the line, so the journey
only takes about 15 minutes at most.
Today, when I arrived at my home station, on my way back, there was a woman being
sick on the stairs heading onto the platform. She wasn't old and looked healthy
enough; she was just bent over the hand rail, vomiting violently. 
We saw this from the opposite platform, and then two of my classmates began to kick
up as fuss, saying they did not want to go that way, as they would have to pass this
woman. However, seeing as those stairs led to where we needed to be, we had little
choice. So, we passed over the bridge and down these stairs, following the line of
other train goers past this woman, who was still being sick.

Every single one of them walked passed her without stopping, only staring.

Not one even stopped to offer help. It was disgusting.

What seemed to be her husband was beside her, but he had a child in his arms, so
there was little he could do. Then finally, a woman stopped by to help.

I applaude her greatly, for having the decency to offer help to this woman. She ran
to get help from the station staff, before returning to this woman and helping her
upright and calming her.

I continued on my way out of the station as usual, bidding good bye to my friends. My
mum was late, so I had to wait outside my the wall, and I picked up snippets of
conversation as other people walked past. Of course, everyone who had just come the
same way as me was commenting on the woman. What was horrible was that they were all
commenting on how disgusting it was.

Sure, being sick is not the most pleasant thing, but did nobody except that one woman
have the decency to lend a hand or get help? No, nobody at all. because we humans are
too full of pride to stoop to the level of helping another in need. That is what
makes the human race disgusting, despicable and something to be utterly ashamed of.

Continuing in my waiting, a trio of boys on roller blades appeared some ten minutes
later, after I had watched the woman and her husband leave the station. They skated
about in front of me for a while, before one made a comment about the woman. The
other two then began making noises immitating her. You would not believe how much I
wanted to go up and hit them.

Luckily for them, they skated away before I could give them a piece of my mind...

I'm not picking a bone with all human beings; after all, there are those still with a
small shred of decency left, such as that other woman who helped. (Whoever that was,
I admire you greatly.) I'm picking a bone with all those ignorant children and
teenagers. All those prideful adults who are afraid to get dirty.

People should grow up and learn some morality all ready. This lack of maturity makes
me really hate being a human. We do not deserve to live as we are.

i know its terrible, people just arent trained to get involved. i am
always doing it cause i always saw my father helping others out. two
days ago at lunch i went to get on the freeway onramp and traffic was
backed up forever, it took forever to get on and i knew something must
be up, finally i got up to the ramp and saw that a car was stalled in
one of the lanes making one lane have to converge into the other,
finally when i got up i could pull ahead and off the ramp and i could
stop and i walked over. there were two (unfortunately large) older
ladies in the car and i told the driver to put it in neutral and
release the brake then started pushing it, luckily another guy had
also pulled over just after me and he came and started helping cause
the car weighed a ton but we managed to push it out of the way and
traffic could flow....the ladies thanked us and i got back in my jeep
and drove off.(this was the second time in the same place ive done the
same thing)....but anyways my point is that hundreds of cars are
passing by and no one stops to do doesnt piss me off
cause i know how the world is but it makes me wonder what the
difference is between those that help or get involved and those that

ps: with the vomiting lady i would have been sympathetic but i wouldnt
have offerred to help only cause im extremely squeamish when it comes
to those kinds of things and had i gotten anywhere near i would have
started retching myself   just reading about it made me dry heave a

I guess it's a sad thing that they didn't stop to help her,
but honestly it's not like humans are big bad evil monsters.
it's not an excuse nowadays I guess but avoiding sick people is honest
natural survival instinct. animals would definitely not help another
sick animal because it's not about that one person's survival.
I hope I don't sound like a bitch saying that ¬¬ it's just what I

I do try to help people, like waking up people on the trains when
it's like midnight and we're at the last stop.

But I wouldn't help a woman being sick because
a) nothing you can do, you're just doing it for the sake of feeling
good that you helped someone
b) you could catch what she's got

Anyway, you walked past the woman too...don't say "I was with
friends"...if you were going to bid goodbye to to friends within
minutes anyway, and wait for your mother, you might as well have
helped her...

It works both ways. You can't have a go at people for not helping if
you walked past as well.

Seriously, re-reading this I must state again, YOU DID NOT HELP THE

I observed this situation from the platform, not from the stairs.

And how did I know my mother was going to be late... there's no need
to have a go, seriously.
