SEATTLE — Saying it was all she could do to keep herself from falling completely apart, local woman Denise Matthews reportedly hasn’t slept a wink after hearing about starving orca J50, but at the same time couldn’t care less that the homeless man sleeping in her apartment’s entryway hasn’t eaten in several days.
“When I step out the door each morning, I try really hard to hide that I’ve been literally crying almost the entire night,” she told members of the press, as she rapidly brushed past the emaciated homeless man’s outstretched hands, not even granting a moment’s thought to how hungry and in need of medical care he might be.
She added that if more people exhibited as much compassion as she did, the world would undoubtedly be a better place for all the creatures living in it.
“This world is just so full of heartless, selfish people, you know. It’s pretty depressing that not everyone cares as much as they should.”
Matthews went on to wonder how anyone could be so callous and lacking in empathy, as to turn a blind eye to the suffering of another living being.
