One of the reasons that drove me to help those two aged people was the empathy that I felt towards them as a human being. I did not see a point why a rational human being would not care for another in dire need.
The second reason that led me to help these two aged people was the care and love that I have for human kind. I am always passionate about life and God’s creation and would not have been comfortable knowing that my neighbor across the streets does not have anyone to take care of him or her (Eisenberg and Mussen, 1989).

This is because it is still again not ethically right for a rational human being to watch over another human being suffer or succumb to starvation. This is because the two aged people had no one to take good care of them.

In collecting my data, I would use the grounded theory practice and
