Pass it on...

I have always wondered why more people do not help each other. It surprises me that evenwhen someone has the opportunity to help another, and can do so without effort, time or cost, so many do nothing. I have come to the conclusion that subconsciously, at least, most of us think ot life a s "zero-sum" game and therefore, if someone else has good fortune, somehow there is the potential that bad luck will come the Good Samaritan's way. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. Good fortune grows as it spreads. You get more control by being considerate than by being unhelpful.
