Today is a game day at my college, which means what it implies. This morning I saw a guy lying in the grass clearly intoxicated and I just walked past him. Then a little later I saw a girl by herself trying to walk also obviously intoxicated and I also just walked by her. I even thought that I should have done something. Especially since they could have seriously harmed themselves or other people might have come along and done harm to them. I’m thinking I could have at least asked them if they were ok or even call a cab for them.
This probably happens all the time, especially at my college. And in all likelihood they’re fine now, or somebody else helped them, or they managed to stumble to a safer place. However, I am not sure that just walking away was not not a wrong thing to do.
I brlieve there is a parable about a poor man lying in the street and the pharisees just walked by him sinilarly but somebody else came along and helped that man and the person that actually stopped to help was the blessed one, or something like that.
What should I have done? Was this sinful in any way?
