Three simple words but very powerful. It’s a primal cry of agony and fear. A SOS call transmitting tremendous distress. An urgent appeal for help. Anyone can understand it. Be it in any language. In my profession I hear it all the time and I leave everything and run (literally). I try to alleviate and ease (if not remedy) at least make the situation better.
I can’t get why anyone wouldn’t. There must be a reason.
Is it ignorance or hate or lack of respect for a fellow human life?
Which begs the question– are some lives less worthy than others?
