For thousands of years in China, helping others has been a virtue in traditional Chinese culture.But nowadays, the virtue seems no longer exist, for many people dare not offer help to those in need, for fear of getting into trouble. This issue has been a hot topic in the news, and the public is in a high fever to discuss this moral problem. Some people think that helping others is a virtue in China, we should proud of it and carry forward this culture, or it will lead to a moray degeneration. While the rest of them think helping others many get lots of unnecessary troubles which is wasting their time and money, in some situation, they may go into jail. In my point of view, people should be good to others.
There is no doubt that some tragic event was a trap by some bad people for blackmail money. The most common case is that an old lady or man was lying on the ground and claiming someone was knocked them down, then their children will ask the warm-hearted “evil man” for a pretty penny. I heard a case that a young man helps an old lady who was hit by a car, but the old lady insisted that the young man was the one who hit her. The innocent man has not proved that he is not the criminal so he lost the lawsuit, he has no choice but accept the verdict. Then the poor guy commits a suicide because he has no money for compensation. This famous case has aroused public debate over the climate of morality and credibility, and many people sigh over the moral degeneration. This case like an alarm to that kind, warm-hearted and helpful people, they wanted to give a hand but fare of getting into trouble.
As the saying goes: one good turn deserves another. Helping other is a positive energy which deserved to be carrying forward. Since every one of us is a component of the society, it is each individual’s conducts that form social morality. I believe positive emotions can be infected, once people see the others are offering help, they might get a big chance of willing to help others. Just put yourself in other’s position, if it is you who need help, what would you feel if everyone watches indifferently or suspiciously, some even just standing and taking pictures then upload? Be good to others, no only one day you might need help, but also helping others will make you feel happy and feel better about life.
In sum, I contend the idea that social environment is necessary for people to be good to others, and people should take the responsibility to offer help to those in need, then we build up a more harmonious society.
