National Good Samaritan Day

'The Good Samaritan' by David Teniers the younger after Francesco Bassano

On this date in 1964, Kitty Genovese was murdered and even though multiple people witnessed the attack, no one took enough action to save the woman’s life. And so today, on the anniversary of that terrible event, we call attention to the temptation not to get involved in someone else’s tragedy. One day, that someone could be you, and you’d be grateful for the help of a stranger who was willing to take a risk or inconvenience themself to save your life. Remember the parable of the Good Samaritan—today and every day—and be a neighbor to someone in need.
