I’ve just finished having a conversation with a man outside the RPA in Sydney. The guy was selling “The Big Issue” from his motorised scooter and was telling me that it gets him out of his house. He was well presented, kinda like one of my uncles from the country and was telling me his medical issues, all of which could visit each of us. Now what was interesting was that he was telling me that 90% of his customers were women and that he very rarely gets a sale to a doctor or medico.
That got me thinking, if those that can afford it and supposed are trained to uphold a certain ethical and morality avoid my new friend, then what does that say about humanity? At a time when civility is under the microscope, isn’t it time that we all stood back and had a good look at our understanding of and how we practice basic humanity? Time to join the human race, not just race along in it.
