I dreamt the other night that I was at an airport. There was a woman who was obviously walking is a very imbalanced way...it was obvious that she had some deformity and was walking up an incline. She began to fall backwards and I grabbed her arm and saved her from falling. Due to the fact, that I was in a rush, I brought her over to some security officers who were sitting and chatting amongst themselves. I was very relieved that she was alright and explained to them what happened. I was totally shocked at their response.
One officer said..."Oh...that is not the first time it has happened to her. You know, she is a bit insane." And...he laughed. I saw the woman's face now clearly...she is a co-worker in reality. Her face was so pained and helpless.
My response was silent, though I felt great pain. How could they laugh at her expense and act as if she did not exist? How callous. I remember then...one officer said..." Oh, there is going to be a meeting about her. Maybe you want to attend."
I interpreted this as him NOT doing his job and giving me a responsibility because I seemed to care and he did not. I do care a lot about people in general. I know I am limited in my knowledge and ability and energy to give. However, this dream brought to my consciousness a struggle I deal with...how to accept that everyone is at their own level of understanding...even these security officers who acted so callously.
