Alle bilder som linker til en ekstern side (altså en ikke-blogspot-adresse), har jeg lånt fra andre steder. Alle andre bilder (de som HAR en blogspot-adresse) er tatt av meg. Det betyr at jeg har alle rettigheter til bildet og at du IKKE får kopiere det.
Hvis du likevel ønsker å bruke et av mine bilder, er du velkommen til å spørre meg om lov. Det er ikke sikkert jeg er like vanskelig som denne teksten kan tyde på. ;)

I Choose To Look The Other Way

I could have saved 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 risk as well as I.
He took the chance, 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 every time I see his wife,
I know I should have saved his life.
That guilt is something I must bear,
but it isn't something you need share.
If you see a risk that others take,
that puts their health or life at stake.
The question asked, or thing 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 choose to look the other way.
