To Judge a Man…

“…not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” I probably don’t have to tell you who said that, sadly he had to die for his ideals.

Below is a video of a young man, not much younger than I am, and though he may not be black – he will almost certainly be judged by others. Why? He is speaking erratic, his hands are dirty and doesn’t look too clean, is a surfing hitchhiker and claims not to know his birthday, carrying all his belongings on his back.

Yet this rather “unusual” young man did the most remarkable thing: He saved a life at the risk of his own.

Yes, Kai is different! Maybe you find him odd, but given the circumstances that would be understandable. Perhaps he has mental issues – but let’s get something straight here: He saved a life and did everything he should do when he was ought to. That’s more than a lot of us “normal people” can say.

And every story, every person has a reason to be what or who they are – so does Kai:

So what do we have here? An excentric guy, with problems or not, who did the right thing. Isn’t that what it’s really about? Does it really matter if you conform to society or if you are a good human? Of course I don’t know Kai, but I can judge him by at least one good action, and such I do. To me, at least for this fact, he is a hero. And I wish more people were concerned with life and others like he is – instead of dedicating their waking hours on mobile devices, reality TV, Facebooking and other shallow activities.

Maybe, despite that he may have troubles of his own, the world would be a better place if there were more people like Kai.
What do you think?
