      Refusing to help the people standing right in front of us, needing care and assistance, corrupts our moral values and perceptions about decency and common humanity.

      Sad that people can get criminalized for acting on compassionate human instinct. But this also shows that in a country with extreme anti-immigration policies; many people are still ready to go the other way. We can’t generalize a national trend to all of its citizens.

        The same can be said of our citizens here. We are not all as anti-immigration as Trump.

      We were not surprised by their interest. The judgement challenged universal human values, the simple drive to help people in distress. Most of us, regardless of religion, are brought up with a set of values that underlines the importance of doing just this. Even I, growing up in a socially dysfunctional home on the wrong side of the tracks, had learned that. This is what we teach our children.

        ILOVE this couple!!! I’m glad other Danish people came to their aid. We are living in such a divided world. Thank God there are people willing to do the right thing. They were very brave. I’m so glad this was posted.
