MY MOM, THE HOMELESS MAN, AND I

One day me and my mom were on the highway in Toronto and there was really bad traffic.My mom ponted out a man with Wendy’s fries and a McDonald’s cup.He was wearing a coat and a toque he was also starting to grow a beard.She said he was homeless, and he was going car to car collecting money.I was about six, so I asked “MomDoes that mean he’s a hobo?”.She replied with “pretty much, yeah”.Then I asked my mom “are you going to give him money?” she said “No”…But I wish she had because this is a real problem around the world.
