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 :)

Being a burden is never a good thing. It makes the thing in this case a person feel like pretty much nothing if someone says they're a burden. It's not their fault they get incurable diseases. If u put yourself in their shoes think about how hard it would be to talk or walk or even eat foods like sushi.

I wouldn't think of a person with disabilities as helpless. A lot of them don't want others help. They don't look at themselves as disabled people, just someone with a gift. Like a blind person for example. They can hear way better than someone who isn't blind and can get around just as good as them. And I would never look at someone with a disability as a burden. If anything, they could teach us alot.

thye're not a burden to scociety. Many blind, deaf, etc. people go out and get jobs in the future just like anyone else. Just because they can't do certain things doesnt make them a burden. It would be like asking a lawyer to preform open heart surgery.

i would help, because society needs peple that are deaf, blind etc. because if there wouldn't be them we would consider less big diseases as big things, like now example big is blindess, so if that wouldn't exist we would think that colour blind would be worst thing...


If we didn't have those conditions, why would it be bad to think of something else as the new worst thing? Is this like the "we need bad so we can have good" argument? That is not to say that a world without "bad" is worse, but that a world without "bad" would lack a standard for such a comparison. Similarly, a world without the loss of certain senses is not worse than a world with them, but merely lacking one form of comparison. I think the happiness of people is more important than having that standard, don't you?

Agreed

I would give those people a chance to make themselves useful rather than supplying them with what they need.

i always help those in need, even in the grocerie store if i see an elderly person in a scooter looking up at one of the top shelves i stop and ask them if i can get anything down for them, sometimes i even ask to help them with the rest of their shopping list .

i do not see people with illnesses, deformities, or handicaps as a burden on our society, to think such a thing would mean you yourself would have no problems with the fact that one day you may end up the same way and would not mind the ridicule and contempt of your fellow human beings .
