Give Me Kindness

By Alex Kakuyo

I see homeless people panhandling on a daily basis where I live. In fact, it’s not uncommon to see a group of business professionals, dressed in high-priced suits standing on a corner next to someone who’s living out of a shopping cart.

In the past, I’ve been told that the worst part of being homeless is that you become invisible. People don’t look at you, they don’t want to stand next to you, it’s like you don’t exist.
