In a world often characterized by its fast pace and self-centeredness, the term “Good Samaritan” stands as a beacon of hope and compassion. This timeless parable, originating from the pages of the Bible, has transcended religious boundaries to become a universal symbol of selflessness and kindness. The story of the Good Samaritan reminds us that even in our increasingly interconnected but often detached society, there are individuals who exemplify the innate goodness within humanity.
At five in the morning on August 31, while Mr. Baring dela Cruz was on his way to work, he was surprised when a parked car on Via Giambellino suddenly caught fire. He immediately called the fire department and reported the incident. The firefighters arrived promptly and quickly extinguished the fire.
You can watch the video captured by Mr. dela Cruz himself, where he narrates the incident. One can discern the nervousness in our good samaritan’s voice. He mentioned that this was the first time he had witnessed a fire incident. He is glad and thankful that he was able to do a good deed for his fellow citizens.
