In recent years, a strange phenomenon has occurred in our country—people are very cautious of helping others, especially helping strangers, because a few people are getting involved in trouble when helping others. Thus, a number of people have no idea whether they should help strangers or not.
As far as I am concerned, we should help strangers in an appropriate way. Firstly, helping others is our traditional virtue and we have been taught to be glad to help others all the time. Hence, we should develop this virtue as much as possible in view of making a harmonious society. Secondly, helping others is helping ourselves in some ways. Just imagine the situation when we are getting into trouble but no one is reluctant to lend a hand to us. Therefore, we should put ourselves in others’ shoes and be glad to help others.
However, in order to avoid involving in unnecessary trouble when helping others, it would be better for us to choose a reasonable way. For example, to help a child who was falling into river, seeking others’ help rather than jumping into the river if you cannot swim at all.
