Homeless in San Francisco

The sign is what caught my attention- “I’d rather be a poor clown than a rich thief. So I’ve GONE FISHIN.”

I didn’t have time to interview this gentlemen, but I asked him if I could take a picture of him and his sign. He kindly said yes (this was after I had already given him some money) and shuffled closer to his sign and smiled. As I walked away he said, ” You know I’d really go fishing if I could walk, but I can’t walk anymore.” I thanked him and I walked away, and I was thankful I could walk. A lot of people ask if it is worth giving money to homeless people. I am still trying to decide when it is best to give or not, but I felt good as I walked away.
