With all the cynicism and suspicion going on in the world, we are often taken by surprise when complete strangers go out of their way to help out people in trouble. It seems to be even more unbelievable for us when we hear stories about individuals who risk their lives just to do something good. Their selfless acts often baffle us. It’s really quite tragic that we don’t have more faith in the goodness of people.
Writer Charles de Lint said, “I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.”
The young man showed great courage.
De Lint’s words definitely come to mind when you watch a clip from this closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage shared on the Facebook page, Real Fights Caught on Camera.
The CCTV footage was recorded last September 20, 2015. It shows a man wearing a hoodie attempting to overpower the bus driver. The man in the hoodie pulls out a knife. Watch how the bus driver fights back and when the disabled young man steps in to help him.
After just 12 hours of being posted on the Real Fights Caught on Camera Facebook page, the video clip has been viewed 7.9 million times and shared 120,688 times. The video clip also got over 8,000 comments, most (if not, all) of them praising the disabled young man for doing what he could in helping the bus driver drive away the knife-wielding man.
Most of us would have been afraid to intervene in a situation that could easily have gotten deadly. However, the selflessness and bravery of the disabled young man should remind us that we have the duty to help out those who are in danger or in need.
15-Year-Old Romanian Boy Who’s 7’6″ Tall Attracts Attention of NBA Scouts
Robert Bobroczky, 15, from the city of Arad in Romania is turning 16 years old next month and will most likely still grow even taller.
Robert Bobroczky, 15, from the city of Arad in Romania is turning 16 years old next month and will most likely still grow taller than his current height of seven feet and six inches. That said, it's no wonder why athletic scouts from the US-based National Basketball Association (NBA) have reportedly been taking note of the developments in his basketball skills since he was around 13 years old.
In a November 2015 article in The Washington Post, Oliver Macklin had this to say about the tall teen: "Bobroczky plays for U-16 Stella Azzurra, a basketball academy in Rome, which produced Andrea Bargnani, the No. 1 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. His giraffe-like frame makes it hard for him to run the floor, but once he gets position in the paint, watch out."
Could he become an NBA superstar?
