Her mouth opened wide. The man was nodding; then forcing himself to wake up. He sat on the sidewalk. On his right there was an old beat up suitcase. In front of him, a piece of cardboard box had some faded words. The only ones she was able to make out were: Homeless. I am a war veteran. God Bless. What did this man do to deserve this? She asked. This is a Manhattan sidewalk and he is living on it. Tears went down her cheeks. She fished in her bag for whatever money she could find. ”Here is a little something.” The man opened his eyes. “Thank you. Are you guys from out of town?” “Not really. We are from right here.” She walked to the corner.
