I Hate/love Halifax

On Saturday night, I watched so many walk past a man in need on George Street. Nobody stopped and asked if he was okay or if he was even breathing. I actually heard one person say "ew" as I was walking up to him. I stayed with him by myself for 15 minutes waiting for the cops/paramedics until ONE GUY stayed with me, talked to him and comforted him while I was on the phone with dispatch. To that one guy: thank you for being a decent human being and staying with me and him. You were the first person to ask if we needed help. Another thanks to the few people who stopped by and asked if we needed anything and didn't stick around to crowd this man’s space. But to the rest of you who kept on walking past before and after I got there: I hope you're feeling like the shitty person you are. —Heartbroken
