What is this world coming to?

I am shocked, appealed and saddened to see something like this.

This afternoon the news covered a story about a man involved in a hit and run and sadly the asshole who hit him isn't what is bothering me about this story.

A 78 year old man who crossed a street was hit by a car on May 30th at 5:45 p.m. The vehicle that hit him ran a red light, crossed over the center line and struck him.

The car slammed into him and left him lying motionless in the street. This happened in front of witnesses and other cars and not a single person stopped their car or walked over to assist or call for police.

What have we become? Does no one have any moral values anymore? He was a human being lying in the street like roadkill! Have we no regard for human life? Are we so desensitized that we could ignore a person injured (paralyzed from the neck down), lying in a street with vehicles swerving around him? I hope not! I cannot imagine this is the world I live in! This was someones father, grandfather, brother, husband, son. This is a person! Wake up people! There are people bitching about things that our government are doing to us, things our bosses are doing to us, things faith is doing to us! We are doing this to ourselves! What a disappointment! I am appealed!
