How angry are you? Pick a reason...politics, religion, race, gender, etc. No wonder so many people are depressed.
I have friends and family on both sides of every issue. I do not comment and I do not share my opinions. It pains me to see them all so angry. It would pain me more to take a side and lose someone's love and affection.
Yet they are brave enough to stand up for what they believe regardless of consequences. Would they abandon me if I shared my opinion?
Civil unrest is upon us on even the smallest of causes. Where can it lead?

Should she have given him money?
He was audacious in his comments. First of all Sherry did not even know the guy. The fact he picked her to ask his impudent questions filled her with angst.
The stranger's narrative started with calling Sherry “a rich bitch.” She had passed him by without dropping any coins in his cup. “Why are you so thoughtless?” this homeless man ask. “You did not even give me the courtesy of a smile.” His provocative attitude really got to her.
She thought about stopping to defend her neglect but continued walking. She should have given him some money because this encounter would haunt her. It would ruin the rest of her day.
Did she do the right thing?
