All he wanted was a little kindness on his birthday. Maybe a dollar or two…or so loose change. He has nothing. He is down on his luck in a ruthless city. Hundreds of people simply walk by paying him no mind. they don’t read his sign. If they do, they don’t know if it’s true. Regardless, most people have made up their mind a long time before this moment comes into focus. His life is not our problem. What if he uses the money to buy drugs. What if he is really hungry. What if it’s his birthday everyday. I’m sure he would want more than this life to celebrate.
