We are born with intention to do good things. Some leave this virtue in childhood, some bring it with them. When opportunity comes, there is a process of examining how surrounding people will react. Nonetheless, the meaning of helping out lays in giving something you have that the others don't, so someone else's opinion should not count.
So after living in New York for 5 years, I asked myself a question - or more so, it came to me naturally - how does the city we live in influences the lifestyle and changes habits, values and beliefs? Although it is known we are the reflection of the surroundings, our backgrounds are very different, which makes it almost impossible to have people with similar behavior. Wait until you see New York people - the most predictable and stale individuals I have ever met. What interesting is that folks who migrate here become of similar kind and that pisses me off. So sad to see good people selling their souls to devil, with no idea of their ultimate purpose. I noticed slight perplexity during last months due to omission. In the city as big as New York, it equals a suicide. An inactive man is like an empty can of Coke that moves according to the tide of the river.
