We are somewhere along the Malaysian highway during our three hour bus journey when I spot this billboard and click off a hurried image.
My first thought was: “What a nice image, if only the world was more like this in reality.”
But on reflection another thought struck me: You can read this both positively and negatively:
(a) We are a team, if you are down we will help you up again.
(b) Whenever someone is down, often many people will stand and do nothing, they don’t put themselves out from their normal business instead, leaving it to the same one or two every time to offer help and take care of the situation.
What do you see when you look at this image? is it a matter of seeing it as a glass half full or as a glass half empty? Is it a positive or a negative image?
Hmmm, I think a billboard where everyone is helping the person up would be even better. What do you think?
