Hunger or heart­less dis­re­gard?

The Star Early Edition - - LETTERS - Nel­son Khu­malo,

were in the driver’s shoes?

Imag­ine your­self ex­pe­ri­enc­ing pain and be­ing stuck in the truck while peo­ple are loot­ing, and they don’t care about you.

Now, next time a truck over­turns, be­fore you get ex­cited and re­gard those goods as a bless­ing, please bear in mind that the driver is a fam­ily man and he might be a sole bread­win­ner.

Do you think it’s a good idea to let him die just be­cause you pre­fer loot­ing?

Are those goods more valu­able than hu­man life?

Use your com­mon sense, re­spect life and stop the loot­ing. Tem­bisa
