How do you perceive homeless people?
A story out of Boston today raises the question. A homeless man found a woman’s wallet. A homeless man found it and returned it, which is what got the headlines in the city.
But perhaps the story was actually in the last sentence of the story:
Susan Clancy regrets not knowing the man’s name, but said his honesty
has changed the way she perceives people living on the street.
Why is it news when a homeless person commits an act of honesty?
