Thank you for the feedback and the support, Farnoosh! You’re always incredibly insightful!

I absolutely agree with and support the idea of giving beggars opportunities! I think that’s the best way to see how genuine they are — if they’re willing to do anything to work, then they are honest and deserve money!

I haven’t done much research on the subject, but I’ve always wondered if the beggars I saw back in the States (in Boston to be specific) really couldn’t find any work. Or if they were just being lazy and/or begging because it paid more for less effort.
