Beggars can’t be Choosers

The saying, "beggars can't be choosers", to me means that you can't help yourself in your situation but the painful truth is that most beggars don’t want to help themselves. Take this chap that I see regularly in the Fourways area, pretending to have a physical disability while accosting motorists. Why don't I believe him, I ask myself. I mean surely there are way too many living below the bread line and this trying to induce feelings of pity is not working for me. Sitting in the traffic watching him, I wondered if beggars can be choosers and choose to make a difference in their lives. It won't be easy but all it takes is a start, no hobbling along between the fast flowing traffic.
