FORTUNE WAS DYING SURROUNDED BY THE CROWD OF PEOPLE, IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY WHO WAS DRIVING BY….
Fortune. That’s what we called her. Her fate gave her gave slightly less happiness than other dogs. We don’t know where she is from or whether she had a home. Nor what kind of home it was. She was lying in the sun by the expressway, almost at the border. She was dying. Brain edema, hematomas, hypoglycemia, severe emaciation. She has hardly any chance, although a lot of cars were passing her by. She was dying in a crowd of people in front of everyone who passed her. Indifference kills.
The city police drove up, a spark of hope lit up. But after a while they drove away and left the dying dog on the side of the road, only a few centimeters from the speeding cars. After all, “this is not their jurisdiction”. Then the police came, they didn’t know what to do, they called us. Everyone who has passed Fortune showed indifference and impassivity. We can say all the bad stuff about the owner who got rid of the dog, but in fact the problem is way deeper. The one who passes the dying dog, thinking “it is not my business”, commits the crime along with the one who sentenced it to death. Until such a situation “is not our
business,” nothing will change in our society.
We have to save Fortune, who is now fighting for her life in the clinic. Nobody helped her there on the side of the road. Now she was given the second chance. Please, don’t stay indifferent.
