how do you feel when you pull up to a light in your air conditioned or heated car, and someone is standing there with a sign asking for help? what assumptions do you make about them? do you think you are usually correct? does it make a difference to you whether they are male or female? what if they have kids? what if it is a child? do you look at them, or to you stare straight ahead? how does it make you feel? do you ever give them money? food? what if they have an animal? how do your answers to these questions change the way you see yourself?
