We don’t usually post stories of violence, but this time we felt compelled to share this video with you. With the current 24-news cycle, it’s easy to become apathetic towards stories of abuse, oppression and torture, to the point that these kinds of news don’t sound alarming anymore.
Thankfully, despite all the chaos in the world, there are people out there who are willing to stand up for those who cannot defend themselves. They are just ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help a fellow human being, just like these young immigrants who witnessed a man beating his wife in a Sonic parking lot.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” – Edmond Burke.
The incident was captured in the video below, which shows the men approaching the couple’s truck as the injured woman screams for help. “He’s got a gun!” she yells. Without hesitation, the young men confronted the man and stop the abuse.
The men tried to hold the man until the police arrive, but after a very intense moment, the man was able to escape, leaving his wife in the paring lot.
If we stay silent whenever we see a person being attacked and abuse, we not only condone the bad behavior, but also become indirect accomplices to a crime.
Thank God these young men intervene! What would you have done in the same situation? Please share your feelings in the comments section below.
