Watch this (it's NOT gory)...
What inhibits us from coming to the assistance of people in need? Having experienced this first hand recently, I have learned that when I rely on my REACTION to something like this, I will fail...just like the people in the video.
I have concluded that I failed in this instance because I wasn't prepared. I relied solely on my REACTION and not a RESPONSE. What's the difference? A response is premeditated. It is planned out in advance. It is having a plan.
This event was a defining moment in my life. I seriously doubt that I'll find myself in a similar situation and react the way I did that afternoon. And if you find yourself in a such a scenario, I hope you'll learn from my mistake and be better prepared than I was.
