    It’s never easy to know how to cope with this aspect of society, we are never told how, we’re simply told that poverty is undesirable.. and that homeless people are typically deviates.
    I’m particularly compassionate to the homeless in lesser fortunate countries.. it’s unfortunate that in some of these areas the begging “industry” is exploited by pimps so it’s often even the more difficult to ensure your donation meets its purpose.. great shot.

  • I just couldn’t agree more with you.
