"Grounded"

You fly on the corner

Yet stay on the ground

This way of life

Won't let you turn around

Make a change

Put your sign down

Go a new way

Life waits to be found

Money?

 Most of the beggars I met, both men and women, usually tell those who ask them that they make more money than they do. I believe they want to save face. They need to justify their behavior to society, and, more important, they need to justify it to themselves. In the end, it does not matter how much they make per hour begging, because the long-term effects on them and their families are devastating.

Walk on By...

 “Sometimes it's easy to walk by because we know we can't change someone's whole life in a single afternoon. But what we fail to realize it that simple kindness can go a long way toward encouraging someone who is stuck in a desolate place.”
