Yes, if they look homeless for real. You never know if circumstances in your life, or in the lives of those you know, will change drastically and you end up there yourself.

You never know by looking at a person..What they are going through.Some would never ask but truly need the help.I have to say I have never begged but have been one of those that people has helped and very grateful for those people.I have been on the street with my child before and I also have been one even with a roof over my head still needed help...So I know how things can get for some...If you can help someone in some way please be kind and do so..You never know when you may be in their shoes..Don't say it would never happen to you..Anything can happen and there you would be.

One of those BEGGERS took my purse several years back, at the park ~ used a credit card for gas before I could even get to the bank and tried to use my health insurace card at a Casino ~ so, NO, I don't give money to vagants, never, never, never & I carry a weapon !

Give a man a fish he eats for a day.
Teach him to fish he eats for life.

Some people will never learn how to take care of themselves because someone has always done it for them and/or they just don't want to do it for themselves.

I help the elderly more then anyone else because they can't physically do for themselves anymore.

Plus some young adults buy video games, high priced phones, alcohol, Tabaco, and other junk before paying or putting money back for bills and food.

Most beggars have more money and more brains than the people who give them money.

I admit I have at times. Guilty of picking up an occasional hitch hiker too...something my wife gives me a hard time for. Stranded motorist, etc.

But one instance made a little more cynical after I witnessed it. A man and woman were at the entrance of a little town nearby, with a sign "will work for food". I wasn't pulling into the shopping plaza where they were at, so it was out of my route. Now when I came through...I seen the woman was walking up a hill, with a cell phone in her ear. Yep, a cell phone.

Now maybe it's just me, but something was a little wrong with that picture. Was she perhaps calling the chauffeur around to pick them up to be dropped off at a more lucrative spot? There are people that truly need it, and there are people that take advantage of kind hearted souls. Darned hard to distinguish which is which sometimes.

I've also have picked up hitch hiker...But I have to remind myself that I need to stop that even if it someone I know..Even some of them are dangerous...(Me) being a woman and alone should never stop to help someone out along the rode.

Have gotten away from the practice. However, gave a homeless vet all the cash I had on hand plus some leftover Chinese food in Ohio recently.
