It’s time to Expand North Carolina’s Good Samaritan Law
This past year I have been working with a coalition of parents who have lost children to overdose to reform North Carolina’s Good Samaritan Law. Through this coalition, I have been reflecting a lot on the lessons I have learned from the kids about the parable of the Good Samaritan, from which this law takes its name. In the parable, Jesus challenges us to consider who our neighbor is. The Samaritan helped the hurt man when others had passed by and left him by the side of the road for dead.
