Humble need

I saw a woman with an apparently handicapped man on an electric cart on the corner of Colfax and Simms. They had a sign that said “Homeless, please help.” I rolled down the passenger side window, and the woman approached my car. I gave her the envelope, and said, “I don’t know what is in here, but it’s yours.” She thanked me. They opened the envelope, and their distressed expressions were unchanged. The light turned green, and I drove away. I was not scared. I was not particularly moved by the encounter as I did not really connect with them. I feel like anybody who is standing on a corner begging for help probably really needs it. I’m sure that the money was appreciated.
