Give and they will multiply

There is an adage that says “give and you shall receive” maybe to encourage people to give. But in our streets where child beggars are growing in number, the modern saying could be “give and they shall multiply.” It is a puzzle why the government cannot enforce the law prohibiting people in the middle of the street to vend or to beg. Maybe the cops are not interested or perhaps they commiserate with the poor.

When a vice president was assigned to the department concerning the street children, she proclaimed that not only the street children will gone in a year but also the adults who are mostly vendors in the street. That vice president eventually became president but nothing happened to her promise. Is the street really a place for opportunities?

  1. I will always give when I have it to spare. I live in a situation where i get a check each month. If not for that check I would be on my face out there and it would be harder. I could not truly pass a child with food and not offer. Her those parents would be in jail if those kids were on the street like what I see in your image.

  2. I learned quickly while living in NYC that the homeless and the beggars are of two groups. One is genuinely needy and the other just begs to make it easier for them to get by and get another drink somewhere. So not know who was telling the truth and who wasn’t the rule was not to give at all.
