This is in Greece. The Greek financial crisis has wrecked too many people´s lives. Please visit Greece! The country has so much to offer, from incredible shopping and nightlife in the big cities, hiking between picturesque mountain villages, amazing historical sites and thousands of wonderful Mediterranean beaches. Oh, did I mention the food? Mmmm.

My family always yells at me for giving homeless people money. So, one day we went to Chicago and I bought 15 meals and passed them out to any homeless person I saw. Then I went back to get more, listening to the sound of my fam telling me "They can get a job and pay for it themselves." I'm going to show them this picture and telling them to stop being so stingey.

There is so much animosity towards to poor in this world -- people think they're lazy, that they've "earned" their miseries and woe. When I see this man cry because he was given a pair shoes...how could anyone think he's chosen this life? If he were just lazy, why would he be so moved?

Today my 91 yr old neighbour came crying to me because his dear dog suddenly died and he asked me to help him. I ran to little Jack who had no pulse but was warm and tried to resuscitate him to no avail. We cried so much together. It was heartbreaking. But he thanked me for trying. I honestly tried my best. Sorry if this upsets anyone. :(
