From Game of the People
EVERY DAY I walk past a young girl who sits in Bishopsgate, the City of London, asking people to smile. She always looks tired and stiff after a night sleeping on the street. Occasionally, I give her some change – once or twice, I have bought her a coffee. I’m ashamed to say, that doesn’t happen too often.
It’s easy to walk past people like this girl and her outstretched hand, many of whom have tragic personal stories, but you know that if your life suddenly got turned upside down, you could find yourself in similar circumstances. I would be lying if I said I have ever done enough to help.
In an age when we can send people into space, develop weapons that can wipe-out mankind and feed ourselves to excess in some parts of the world, scenes of the young and old on the street seem positively medieval. Personally, I cannot imagine what goes through their mind or how they survive against the odds.
