Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 11/27/17
There have been several articles lately about homeless people who have helped a driver hurt in a car accident or returned money that they found to the rightful owner. In response, money has poured in to provide housing and food, and job offers have resulted. When these people turn out to be veterans, the avalanche of goodwill intensifies.
This response to a good deed performed by someone in unfortunate circumstances is admirable, but: Why do people in dire straits who need help have to perform some act of public benefit covered by the media to receive our help? Does charity and goodwill have to be triggered by some unicum that only then merits a public response?
Our church continually provides food, shelter, clothing, and human contact for those in need. A scout earning his eagle badge is now conducting a drive to provide living essentials to the homeless. It’s easy to find institutions and people dedicated to helping the less fortunate and volunteering or contributing to them. Why does it take some public act of “worthiness” to trigger the clearly available means extant to help people in need?
We shouldn’t require a media-enhanced act to justify the merit in helping others. What we need is the heart to help.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. —Anne Frank
