“A Kenyan elite runner passes water to a dehydrated disabled Chinese runner who she saw suffering. This delayed her from winning. She became 2nd in the race not only losing the 1st position but also a US$10,000 cash prize. It’s not all about winning.”
What a great human interest story! I found it on google+ and wanted to share its inspiration with a challenging question:
Would we be willing to help someone with disabilities if it meant sacrificing something?
Helping the Disabled Takes Sacrifice
Though we would want someone to help us if we were struggling, would they if the only role model of helping was from what they observed us doing?
I wrote a post a while back on seeing the world through another person’s perspective that will benefit us all to be more mindful of how we can help the disabled.
