There is a point in each one of these situations when a very silent intrusion changes the circumstances from one thing to another. The key to life is knowing when the line is crossed, and knowing what to do to rectify the deteriorating situation.
Apathy is when we go to sleep … and are no longer concerned about the dangerous crossing.
