Hm…I see a homeless person…what do I do: cross the street? walk around? hold my breath? forget about it? …

“A few years ago, I asked someone I respect what his policy is on giving out money to homeless people. He responded by saying, ‘I can’t always help them, but I can always acknowledge their existence.’”
