Busy Singaporeans

Today I went earlier for my 1st Aid course, and since I was early, I sat down at Jurong East Station. The hordes of busy people swarmed past me endlessly - even ruthlessly. There was a NUS student there selling flags, but nobody stopped to buy from him. A few did. But very few. One lady put in a $2 note. It reminded me of Jesus who had the leisure time to watch people put in their donations. I did not see any widow's mite, but I saw few generous Singaporeans. Perhaps we are suffering from charity overdose & bad publicity - think Ren Ci & NKF sagas. Personally I wouldn't have donated. But today I saw the poor boy and when asked, dropped in 60 cts. I had the time, though not much money.
