So Many People Are Begging Alms Again In The City

While the Christmas Day is yet to come, but so many people now in the city begging for alms. Many are children coming near to you and will sing a Christmas song, sometimes you can't even hear their voices. Some are mothers carrying their months old child and just open their hands to ask for money without even singing. Some are Badjao from Mindanao where I think part of the syndicate. Its okay to give money but sometimes its awful when you give one of them, many of them will follow.

yes, i have seen them too. worst thing is, as small as 7 years old, they run to catch a ride on the jeep, sing a song then get off, even while the jeepney is driving fast. i mean accidents could just happened. i hope the government can do something about them. they are quite rude, you know.

My concern is if a syndicate or a bad group runs them to ask for a few penny. I hope those kids will have a great life someday, I hope they will not refuse the opportunity that God will give them. It i so hard to take off the pride of life out of pain and insecurity in exchange of having a great life, because many people want to live in anger and pain of their past.
