Fading away


I see this young man begging at the corner of George and Park Street quite often. He frustrates me. He frustrates me for he is young, capable and strong. And yet he chooses to beg over getting a job. Is it drugs, alcohol or lack of self respect. Do people who drop a coin, moved by his kneeling position, help him or quite the opposite enforce his hopeless, emphatic escapism? After all, if he can get money that way why work? Why better yourself? You know work is monotonous, requires discipline and it takes a largo portion of your time away.

Goregeous on the outside, beautiful on the inside


We hear the expression that beauty is only skin deep quite often. Looking at this gorgeous girl you would think she is a top model and belongs on a cover of a magazine. And yet, she is a volunteer for the Stop AIDS Now campaign trying to gather research funds at Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall. I admire her beauty and I’m full of respect for her activity.
