The Others Will Help (08/13/2021)

The world is a dangerous place not because of evil but because those that look on and do nothing. ~ Albert Einstein

I was out of town staying in a hotel and while I was there, the elevator went out. I came in loaded down with bags from shopping and food to go. After finding out I was going to have to make multiple trips and climb 6 flights of steps, I patiently stood in line at the front desk to complain and ask for assistance. A man of color and his child was in front of me and was complaining too. The guy at the front desk basically told him, “sorry”‘and said they were working on repairing it. Then it was my turn, after having a polite but firm conversation with him, the front desk guy offered to comp my room. I agreed and said, but you must comp his too and I pointed to the man and his child. The front desk guy was really taken back that I had demanded that he comp this guy’s room. A guy I did not even know, never had a conversation with him but I only thought it was right to comp his room too since his complaint was the same as mine. The front desk guy did and the man w the child thanked me. My point is…be a voice, help others who may not feel as though they can speak up, pay it forward, ask how someone is doing and really listen to them. Quit thinking you don’t have time or someone else can do it. You can do it. If you really want to be blessed and sow good seed, do good deeds, and be kind, help people. I promise it will make you feel like a hero by just doing the right thing.
