Why You Shouldn't Offer To Buy Food For The Homeless

My sister has been homeless. She has been addicted to drugs.She never planned on succumbing to a monster mental illness, on being bullied and assaulted, on running away from home. But it happened. And I like to think that if, in that dark time of her life, she had politely asked a stranger for some help, they would have smiled and given it to her.
