Good Samaritan Involvement Day

The noble Order of the Knights of Jubal traces its origins back to the Year Two Thousand A.D., when a group of distinguished persons of good and true character, founded the order to promote chivalry and honour. The order takes its name from our leader, Alexander Jubal McRae, who on two (so far) occasions has been seriously injured, in one case fatally, defending an innocent woman from attackers.

Hi there!<P>Please note that today (March 13th) is Good Samaritan Involvement Day. The Order of Jubal has officially recognised this as a day of celebration, and for good deeds to be done.<P>Thanks to BandMan2K for researching this:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>
I found out that on March 13, the is Good Samaritan Involvement Day. It was created to get people to help out someone who needs it. It's based on a gruesome murder of a woman named Kitty Genovese in Queens, NY. While she was being stalked and killed by a man, 38 of her neighbors just sat by and did nothing stating that it was SEP (Someone Else's Problem for those of you that have never read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) Anyways, some people were appalled at the story and decided to create a day that would try to get people to help others as the Good Samaritan did.

gah.<P>I'm pretty incapable of doing good deeds today, unless I find someone stranded on the road after midnight, because I don't get off work till 11PM...<P>Unless an opportunity arises here at work, which I doubt, because my job is to help people...<P>--Ogredude

I do what I can for whom I can. To me, Good Samaritan day is 24-7.<P>------------------

Thanx for remembering. Everyone should try to do something today to be a good samaratian above and beyond what they would normally do as a member in the Knights of Jubal. Show your support and prove to at least a few people that CHIVALRY IS NOT DEAD IN THE WORLD, just dormant until all have opened their eyes.<P>------------------

Hey... that's right. Slipped my mind for a small moment. Time to do good deeds in the service of man! <P>Actually, I think I did do my Good Turn today. Doesn't mean I'm going to stop. <P>------------------

Absolutely. Of course we should perform good deeds whenever we can, regardless of today's date.<P>However, Good Samaritan Day can help other people (and us) in two important ways.<P>1. It can act as a lens, to focus people's attentions on helping people, and on what the Order of Jubal is about.<P>2. It can be used as encourage other people to do great works on at least one day of the year. <P>Once we set a precedent, the other 364 days should follow on naturally.<P>Regards,
Sir Greg<P>------------------

Well, it's the day after. Hope you all at least tried to do something, however i came up short. That's ok though, as long as you were going out into this world with the idea to be there when anyone needed your help, but i also agree with Kanaeda that Good Samaritan Day should be 24/7, however sometimes people don't need it or don't want it. as long as We, The Order of the Knights of Jubal roam this earth, no one need be left out in the dark or helpless.<P>If anything, we started something that could catch on or at least gives us more stability in the sense that we're doing things as a group and showing that this Order will never die!<P>------------------

IMO, if you missed good samaritan day you can make up for it by just keeping it on the surface of your thoughts that you can help out _anytime_<P><P>------------------
