Maintain a level of safety
I READ about the woman who challenged a man beating a puppy on a busy street.
She seemed surprised that no other members of the public came forward to help.
Although I admire her courage, I doubt if I’d confront someone like that. Given that the man was apparently viciously beating a puppy, his morals aren’t very high — and for his anger to transfer to anyone challenging him wouldn’t take too much.
No, we should not turn a blind eye to abhorrent acts, but a level of self-awareness and safety surely must be maintained.
That said, had I witnessed her berating the man, I’m sure I’d have given her back-up.
And I do hope he is found and has the puppy removed from his care.
