    5. What if it meant the result would be different and the impetus for aid for the region would not have existed? Is it justifiable to not intervene if it brings greater awareness to a problem or issue?
    6. Share an example when you, someone you know, or someone you viewed on the internet or social media filmed a situation when they probably should have stopped recording and helped.
    7. Find an example on the internet and post a link to someone who kept recording when you think they should have put the camera (phone etc…) down and helped instead of recording the situation. If we can’t click on the link for instant access you will lose 5 points.
