The Sign People are everywhere
Almost every corner near the Mall there are men or a couple with a dog, or a woman with a sign declaring homelessness and asking for handouts. It truly saddens me to see people in that state of desparation or to interact with those who always assume that the people are not really homeless but pan handlers looking for easy money. Either truth saddens me.
When the traffic light causes you to be stopped within ten yards and you have no money, you feel guilty. You know the amount of rejection the man or family are already feeling the desperation. Homeless shelters have a clientele that stay near to eat and sleep, but I think people like this are new to the bottom and feel this is the only thing they have. It saddens me.
