A real life story...
Anyway, I came across a homeless guy, who was having a philosophical conversation with some people. It was clear to me, he was quite bright...
I listened in, and was impressed. Afterwards, I dug around in my wallet, and gave him what (for me at the time, as a student) was a substantial amount of money...
He was grateful, and he said come with me, so I followed him.
First we went to a place where he bought a bottle of alcohol. Then he went and found a friend of his, and gave him some of the money I had given to him (I think repaying back a loan)...
Then we got some pizza.
The impression I got was, this was not a dumb guy. But sadly, he was an alcoholic. If he could get over his alcoholism, I felt he would be probably reasonably successful in life...
I never saw him again after that night. I hope he did okay.
I feel not all homeless people are like the stereotype... I don't know all the answers, but no doubt some have the capability to get out of their situation, and get back on their feet - and there can be hope...
Just felt like sharing!
