I cried, how could they be so cruel.

The fact he got a slice for the kid despite all that too, just speaks volumes. I try to help homeless people where I can, but I haven't been able to help them all, I am going to try harder next time, even if it means me going to an ATM and withdrawing cash just to help them out.

Fuck, that really got to me.

Bless you for all that you've done and will do, and your lack of paternalism. It really does make a difference when you have nothing.

I've been a wage slave for almost ten years and dying slowly on the streets is one of my fears since I've gone hungry before. This video scares me it also gives me a little bit of hope.

The fucked up thing about it is that this could happen to anybody given the circumstances and look how people keep up the status quo as if it's alright to belittle people for being down. Homelessness is no joke and it shouldn't even exist but here we are. Gosh ain't humans just so goddamn wonderful?

Humans were a mistake. If God created us, He really needs to work on His character-writing. Though we are most likely just a big mistake that happened by chance. Wonder if sometime in the future another overly sentient and "intelligent" race will take over? We apparently come from apes, so maybe dolphin people will be the most intelligent species on Earth someday.

After humans are extinct, of course, since as long as we exist, no other species (not even ours) will thrive.

Oh that's so sad. Crying eyes out. I've never seen people treat homeless people like this in UK. I have been in homeless system here and it seems there is a safety net for ill, disabled people and veterans not in other countries and US. So cruel!!!

My grandma tells me, “If God exists, and I were God, I would look at humans and think to myself, ‘boy, I messed up.’”

Not a surprising outcome. People generally think the kid had a rough time and ended up on the streets because of reason beyond his control.

The grownup however people probably thought he wasted his changes with drugs and whatnot. Or that he should just "get a job" ... Something the kid is too young for.

It's easy to see what passers-by are thinking here.

Maybe meds made me heartless but this video didn't move me at all. It's just pointing out the obvious. Kudos to the makers of the movie for putting in a good deed at the end of the video though.

What is also fucked here in europe beggars often are women with a small child in their arms begging for money only to later be picked up by some dude in a recent model mercedes/bmw... There are "gangs" who use women and children for this type of moneymaking. Makes it very hard for the people who really are homeless to be taken seriously and thus taking away what little they would earn because of these malicious people. The world is a shithole
