How do you respond to impending catastrophes?

This is another blog inspired by the Comic strip, “Dark Side of the Horse by Samson” and taken from the internet on October 9, 2010.
In the first frame we see the Black horse, Horace sitting under a tree and looking up, says: “ My neighbor’s brats are pushing a shopping cart up the hill”. Then in the next frame he says: “ I wonder w… No! This is madness! I must do something! Then in the final frame, you see him standing there with a straw boater hat and cane, beside a sign that spruiks, “ “Come and see death-defying stunts. $5 Admission.”
Terribly opportunistic of him wasn’t it? Still I can’t help but wonder if most times we don’t respond any better, even if we don’t try and make “a buck”, out of it? Yes often we stand there, talking about doing something, when in fact what we should be doing is trying to stop or at least change the situation. Your thoughts please?
