Sharing is good. Helping others - also good. Giving to those in need – great.
It happened that I was driving home with a bag of organic carrots beside me. It was a half hour commute home so I munched along the way, until I came upon an intersection. There stood a Gen Y’er (pretty sure) with a sign asking for money: Broke Need Money for Food.
My carrots had been passed onto me from a pal who left the country for a week. I leaned out the window and handed them over.
I watched him walk back to his pack and place them beside it. As I drove by he tipped his hat to me. It wasn’t money, it was food. It wasn’t mine originally. I was just passing it on.
