I've heard people talk about the good old days when people used to leave their back doors open and trusted in their neighbours.
While the bus I was on was at the bus stop, I noticed a man outside pushing a girl in a buggy (pushchair). He stopped in front of a shop. He left the girl in the buggy outside and went inside the shop. I couldn't tell how long the girl was outside the shop as the bus moved away.
There are two ways to look at the man's action.
On the one hand, I could see the man as not being in his right mind by leaving a young girl outside, even if he was only just popping into the shop for a moment. Didn't he realise that anyone could show up and abduct the child?
On the other hand, I could see the man's actions as demonstrating trust in the Universe, like the good old days when people trusted their neighbours.
As far as I see it, the good old days is now.
I trust in the universe.
