Abandon Man. Oops. I Mean... Ship.

I'm trying to wrap my head around understanding why people more and more are abandoning their fellow man. Or have they always and now it's just being more publicized? (possible)

The captain that abandoned his ship, leaving hundreds of cruise passengers to fend for themselves, some literally left for dead.

The military member who betrays his country leaking information to foreign interests.  Spies successfully infiltrating our Armed Forces having access to very sensitive information.

Three Nortel employees who rigged the books for more bonuses.

And these were just in the past week!

What made these people think only of themselves?  Why did they think it was just about them?  Why didn't they feel supported in their role?  What did we do to lack support of them in their role?  Who jaded them and where?  Where did the anger come from?  The fear?  The apocalypse is surely coming - apparently it's every man for himself these days.

I really don't know what to say about these situations.  Each one is different in its own right and somehow their morals got lost and left to the wayside.  How are your morals standing up these days?  I will surely be re-examining mine.  I've reinforced this time and time again and if you're a regular reader it won't surprise you - don't forget about your fellow man.  There are others suffering on this earth just like you are, we need to be there for each other.  Help a sista out, y'know?
