Andrea, thank you so much! I knew you would totally get what I was trying to say. It's a continuous inner fight to help or not help. Everybody deserves help, it's just scary. I wish no-one was in that position to have to beg for help in such a manner.
I have worked in a convenient store where the homeless used to hang out. Listening to their stories was heartbreaking. Men who had a courier and they lost everything. Then there were others. All of them just wanted a bite to eat and a kind word. Being homeless is something I thought could never happen to me. Whenever I see someone on the side of the road holding a sign I stop and if it's only a few dollars it makes me feel good to help someone in need. Thank you for sharing. Take care
Thank-you There's so many people out there who are in need, it's something I would never wish on anyone. It's scary to think most people are only a paycheck away from that. I feel blessed with all that I've been given.

This piece struck me as I myself often pass people who are/claim to be homeless and wonder the same thing, which inevitably leads to the question "should I part with my money"?
To be fair, some aren't always genuine and they are often the ones you can clock instantly, but most of them probably are and I guess that is worth a few of our coins......if we ourselves are able to give them.
