Accident Attorneys Young and Young Say “Thank You, Officer David S. Moore”
At Young and Young, we work very hard to be the best Indiana Serious Injury lawyers we can be. Serious injuries arise from serious accidents. If you or a loved one is involved in a serious highway accident, drunk driving accident, big truck accident, construction accident, or any other serious accident, we know the medicine and know how to aggressively represent your interests.
We want to take a minute, in these days of danger and concern, to send out our thanks to the family and colleagues of IMPD Officer David S. Moore. Thank you Officer Moore for dedicating your life to the protection of Hoosiers living in Indianapolis. Thank you for your bravery. Thank you for your selflessness. We want you to know that we support your family and your fellow employees on the IMPD. For those who survive Officer David S. Moore, please be careful, thank you for your hard work. We all sleep better because you are willing to stand between us and those who would do us harm.
Along these same lines, we have noticed a troubling lack of empathy in our society. Empathy is the ability to understand the situation of a fellow human being. It is not sympathy, sympathy allows us to feel sorrow or pain when another is dealing with a loss. We see this lack of empathy all around us. We see it when someone walks across the street despite the other person having the right of way. We see it when someone throws their trash on the street, for others to have to look at and pickup. We see it when a drunk gets behind the wheel and places everyone else on the road in danger. We see it in a felon with a gun taking the life of an officer because the felon does not want to get caught. The sad part about this lack of empathy is that it is a learned behavior. It can be learned as a child when that child is abused. It is learned as a child when parents do not train and guide their children. It is learned when children are shown that whatever is good for me is good, no matter how it might affect anyone else. I do not have the answer to this problem. I do know, however, that every day, I can empathize with others and show concern for their suffering. I can be kind to others, and not always think about myself. What is best for me is not always best, if it will hurt others. I can keep this in mind as I move through my day.
David S. Moore, thank you for living this truth. May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
