This is so very true. I would be a liar if I said that I myself am one of those people that just quickly walks by these common scenarios everyday. I myself am one of those people that likes to brush matter aside, and act as if it doesn't exist.
For a while now, I have noticed these conscious decisions that i make everyday. And that other people make. And so, I am trying to at the very least change my approach to these common scenarios. I am at least acknowledging the fact that this person (begging or what not) is here and alive; rather than walking pass them as if they did not exist.
All in all this was a really nice piece that made me think again and reflect on things in my life. Thank You. (:
