I dont really support Mendicancy. People on the streets begging for money could never stop if they know that people would still give them money through begging. They tend to depend on this means. In our country our lawmakers have passed a law to stop Mendicancy and im really supporting that law.

I have to bring my daughter into the city often, and you always have a few at the corner asking for money. I always give about 5 dollars away. It's not much out of my pocket, so it's no big loss. I keep sayng one of these days I am going to make a whole bunch of sandwichs and hand them out, but never do. I really need to get motivated on that, now that the cold weather is here.
