Letter to the editor: Passerby should have helped elderly woman in need

In response to Elizabeth Oettinger’s letter to the editor on Feb. 8, about her denied request for assistance. Her only request was that a passerby help her over a snowbank so that she could proceed to the library. His answer was “sorry I can’t, I’m pressed for time,” and continued on his way. Was his time so valuable that he couldn’t assist an elderly lady to the sidewalk? A few seconds of kindness out of one person’s day makes a big difference.
In Second Corinthians, Verse 6, it reads: But this I say, he which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
To this individual I pose this question. In your time of need what will your harvest be? Will someone help you or will the response be sorry, no can do?
Henry W. Haskell
