I could have save a life that day, but I chose to look the other way. It wasn’t that I didn’t care. I had the time and I was there. But I didn’t want to seem a fool, or argue over a safety rule. I knew he’d done the job before. If I called it wrong he might get sore. The chances didn’t seem that bad. I’ve done the same he knew I had. So I shook my head and walked on by, he knew the risks as well as I. He took the chances, I closed an eye, and with that act I let him die. I could have saved a life that day, but I chose to look the other way. Now ever time I see his wife, I’ll know I could have saved his life. The guilt is something I must bear, but it isn’t something you must share. If you see a risk that others take, that puts their life or health at stake. The question asked or things you say could help them live another day. If you see a risk and walk away, then hope you never have to say. I could have saved a life that day, but I chose to look the other way.
