After the guy got out of the car Alma started to cry, saying "That was hard." We talked with him and said we understand it was hard but at the same time if it was Daddy he would want someone to help him. After our talk Alma was doing better. It isn't like it is the first time we have stopped to help people, we do it often. However, it was the first time we helped someone that was injured with Alma in the car. Less than a week after Jeremy and I were married we say a horrible accident on the freeway that we stopped to help, I was still a licensed EMT at that time. That is a story for another time.
The experience on Saturday got me thinking it is hard at times to know what is right. I was thinking did I scar my son? was helping that man worth it? I say "YES! It was worth helping the man." I couldn't in good conscienceness driven past that man. I would always wonder what happened to him, I still wonder if he is ok. I think Alma is fine, no scarring.
I won't stop ( I won't say never because there might be that special case) to help people if I'm by myself or with Alma still young. Once Alma is older I will stop. And if I'm with Jeremy we stop often.
I posted this on Facebook to see if other people would've done the same thing and here are the responses got
