Recently, a friend told me that he accidentally woke up in the middle of the night and saw some thieves trying to steal jewelry at the entrance of the shop on the ground floor of their apartment building.

Most people, seeing this, would yawn and go back to sleep. But my friend stuck his head out of the window and started shouting at the thieves to leave and that he had called the police. They immediately fled.

“Why did you need to do that?” I ask him. “Is that your shop? Or your friends?”

“No,” replies my friend, “I don’t know whose shop it is. And what difference does it make? You can’t just watch indifferently as someone’s property is being robbed!”

I smiled and shook his hand.

How I wish we all thought and acted like him!
