Should I Have Done Something?

Should I Have Done Something?

I've been feeling guilty this week. I stopped to get gas at a station on the way home the other morning. I was minding my own business, when all of a sudden I saw two men jump another guy. They knocked him to the ground, and starting beating and kicking him. There were other people around me, but nobody did anything. I started to make a move towards the pair to help the guy, but then stopped. Both guys looked rough, and this station usually has a fair share of homeless and gang looking types. 

The two eventually stopped, and the guy got up to go back to his car. I was able to grab a picture of the car's license plate, and called 9-1-1 to report what happened, but that didn't make me feel any better. When I got home I told my wife what happened, and she said I did the right thing. I didn't know if those two had a gun or knife. Maybe I could have helped the guy...or maybe I would have found myself on the ground with him?

All I know is, if I had been in that situation, I would have wanted someone to help me. Would they? Did I do the right thing? My head says yes, but my heart says no. What would you have done?
