Getting some perspective
Let’s take our first step into someone else’s shoes. Imagine that you are someone alone. Someone with seemingly nothing to live for. How do most of you react to someone with a sign on the side of the street, asking for something? Some respond with something as small and simple as a smile.
Yet most people, like ourselves, stare forward and act like we’re five. It’s the, “If I can’t see you, you can’t see me,” mentality, in hopes that if we look away long enough, or appear to be busy enough, they will simply go away, or better yet — just disappear.
How do these people feel? Being ignored, tossed aside, possibly despised by the majority of everyone they have ever come in contact with, it’s no wonder that someone would be bitter and hardened. What if we were in their position? How would we feel and react?
Well, we actually want to find out — not to say everyone should go out and stand on a street corner, but you get the idea.
Our master plan is to make a few different signs: The first will be your typical, “Anything helps. God bless,” and then we plan to have a little more fun with it and test the reaction to a few more humorous signs. Such as the hysterical, “Parents captured by ninjas, need money to pay for ninja lessons.” Then we’ll tell ya’ll about responses and maybe finally understand how others actually feel.
