Before, I learned from a teacher this great lesson:

"A team is only as strong as its weakest member."

Similarly, a society is only as strong as its weakest people. So if we let them be a burden, they will always be a burden. Besides, handicapped doesn't really mean totally disabled. As long as people are breathing, they will be capable of something.

Ahh.. things like this are the one that makes you so sure that we live in a world that's constantly in a shade of gray.

If i say yes to helping out those people, then i'll be lying. I'd rather be a bad person than to be a hypocrite. I'd be brutally honest. I'd ditch them even if they are someone that i care about. And should disability befall me, i'd prefer to have my life ended than being a burden to somebody else.

It sounds so choclattly nice to be a good person and help them out. But as HittZ say, if YOU are the one that's responsible with that disabled person.. would you put up with them enough to give up your own life and aspiration?

I think this world is cruel. Things always goes wrong when you compare ideals to reality. But hey, what the fck else is new?

Why feel sorry? Feeling sorry for them would only make them even more sorry for themselves. I'd rather treat them as equals.
Unless of course they're using their disability to gather sympathy than try to actually do something. Then I'd really want to plant a bullet in his/her head.

I`d help because I`d feel guilty if I don`t . =/ If society thought that these people are such burdens ,
we shouldn`t have anything that would make a disabled person`s life easier like wheelchairs ,
wheelchair ramps , etc ...

it depends on the person. if it's a stranger, then sure. but if it's one of those people who try to take advantage of you because of their illness, then no

Not too be mean or anything...but I believe some people are really useless. Like the ones that don't do anything in their lives or have absolutely nothing in mind. Everyday I see kids at my school who like too bully others and be stupid and that is what I think is being called "useless." People who are selfish and greedy..are seriously useless.

But...as for the disabled I guess they are not a burden. I mean they probably didn't cripple or blind themselves so it is not their fault. It is just that they are unlucky and had that happened to them so of course they are not a burden....

You should watch "Grave of the Fireflies" It deals alot about not helping someone because you think it's a burden and how they end up. It's really sad but worth watching :)

I'm not going to help if I can see that they can do something for themselves, unless they're in danger or in a situation that they needed a big H.

of course they are a burden but i wouldn't mind helping them out once in a while
like peeps in wheelchairs, i go out of my way to open the door for them
one thing i won't do is help old people across the street, i've never seen it done, and what if the old person abducts me..
