Show Some Kindness For The Woman on WIC

I found this rather touching.

I am only sorry that for so many of us, we must actually experience the suffering ourselves before we can show sympathy (and often even this is not enough). One of the basic principles of charity in Jewish law is that charity should be done in a way that maintains the dignity of those receiving it. That includes, when seeing one dependent on federal or state aid, trying to show the same courtesy and respect you would to any other shopper.
