Cynthia Morgan: People need to show more compassion

December 3, 2013 

A plea to the people of my community: On Nov. 30 I was driving west on Orangeburg and came upon a man lying partially in the road and not moving. He was being observed by three adults standing about 15 feet away. I asked if the man was OK and a woman stated 911 had been called and that the man fell and was not hit by car. My first response was to assist the man, which I did.

What a good feeling it was to be able to assist somebody in need. However, the three adults continue to haunt me. They showed no compassion for the injured man. To my three fellow Modestans, I will pray for you so that if ever you or yours are in need, a kind person will stop and offer compassion. A kind word or good deed goes a long way and will make our community just a bit better to live in.
