3.12.1, Friday

Cloudy and windy

In front of Uplex at around 10:00pm in Sinchon, Seoul, South Korea

It’s one of the days when you have a lot of fun and then something
unexpected and shocking happens the very next moment. After having
dinner, grocery shopping at the supermarket, eating green tea McFlurry
at McDonalds; i was heading back to my dorm when i heard a big clash at
the center of the walking box, near UPlex. I swiftly turned my head and
witnessed a car colliding into the corner of the sidewalk. Debris from
the car were showering everywhere, smoke permeated the scene, and soon
people crowded the area to see what the commotion was all about. When i
approached the chaotic scene, i saw a young boy covered in blood, lying
on the pavement, crying in excruciating pain. I was extremely shocked
and emotional; I wanted to help, but i didn’t know what to do. At that
very moment, my brain froze as I stood there watching helplessly over
the poor injured boy.

Bottom line is that although we are careful and alert about the
things surrounding us, we can not ensure that other people are. Like in
this case, the driver was drunk so his recklessness and irresponsibility
affected many innocent people. Therefore, i believe that people should
think how their actions can affect other people before making any.
Wouldn’t that decrease the amount of unfortunate and traumatic cases?
