A Sign - of desperation

A desparate man on a cold, rainy day

I become very anxious when I'm waiting for the bus.  It seems the time that all of my fears and worst feelings about myself and my situation come out.  I have a very hard time staying present and am usually verging on a panic attack. 

Today I was feeling all of those feelings as I waited for the bus.  Once on the bus, we made it only a few blocks, and I saw something to make me very grateful for the situation that I'm in. There was a desperate man on the side of the road. His sign read "Wife Ill & Lost Job.  We Lost Everything."  I wanted to jump off the bus and give him the last couple of dollars that I had in my wallet.  More than that, I wanted to be able to help him the way that others have helped me recently.
