I'm committed to serving, and doing for others. I have the courage to stand up for my beliefs and convictions My cross to bear is to bring truth where there is a lie. To bring light where there is darkness. I stand before God that knows my heart, and pray for forgiveness of my sins, and to guide me on the path of enlightenment.

The Good Samaritan Told by Jesus Christ in his Time . . . and Modified for our Time
Jesus answered, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, 'Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.' Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?"
"A certain man was going down from
Chicago to Virginia and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat
him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain Democratic member
of Congress was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other
side and said: “I will call the police to come handle it”. In the same way a
Republican member of Congress also, when he came to the place, and saw him,
passed by on the other side. Saying: “Another welfare case that is most likely
an alcoholic or on drugs.” Then, an independent Member of Congress came across
the poor man. He stopped, and leaned down to hear the faint whisper coming from
the poor pans swollen bleeding lips. He heard him say that a Demarcate and a
Republican just walked away from him and did not offer any help. Then the man
from the Independent Party Member of Congress rose up in anger that Democrat
and Republican did not help. So, the independent walked away saying to the poor
man still lying on the road: “I will make sure the people know about the injustice
done to you;” while reaching for his cell phone to call CNN to let them know
about the inhumane treatment to this poor man by both parties. But then when it appeared all hope was lost
for the poor man; a garbage truck stopped and two Negro’s got off the truck and
walked over to help him. When they looked at him they were moved with
compassion. They took medical supplies from the first aid kit they carry on the
truck and bound up his wounds and called 911. They waited for the ambulance. When
they knew the man was in good hands they hopped back on the Garbage truck and
continued on to pick up the garbage from all the good Christians homes.
Good Samaritan bled to death on New York street as 25 pedestrians ignored him for more than an HOUR By Mail Foreign Service UPDATED: 05:51 EST, 27 April 2010
Blood oozing from his body, this is the homeless man who more than 20 people ignored for nearly an hour as he lay on a New York street after saving a woman from being mugged.
CCTV footage of Guatemalan immigrant Hugo Tale-Yax, 31, shows pedestrians walking past the stricken man.
Some turn their heads to look, others stop to gawk. One even lifts his body, exposing what appears to be blood on the pavement underneath him, before walking away.
