You know, I talk to homeless people all the time in Toronto and most of them are just like you and me.

They have family, friends and loved ones just like all of us. Most have just seemed to have lost their way but seem happy no the less.

Nice post, we have to show more of the human side to homeless people!

This is a fairly common site here in Italy. Especially of course in Milan and Rome. What is sad is when it's the young children that are also begging, but also resort to stealing. Have seen it happen on the subway in Milan, and have heard of A LOT this sort of thing in Rome.

This is also very common in South Africa. alsmot every stop street or traffic light has someone with a board. It is a sad sight to behold.

In Spain we also see a lot of this, it is soooo sad to me. i know is not the answer but I normally go to a supermarket and buy them some food, I know that is not the answer and I don't feel better , I do it becaouse...I don't know to do something..I remember once, A man looked at me with tears in his eyes and told me that I was an angel...I couldn't stop crying....
This world is completely mad

I agree. Sometimes I think the Capitalist society seems to reward all the "wrong" people. Success in the public eye is not measured in personal qualities of people, but in wealth. Celebrities are common household names, but more often than not, bad role models. Every once in awhile I wonder how we got this way, but then I think I might just be pessimistic.
