To the grey and miserable Maldonian : even if this man is not blind, he has probably a lot of others issues (begging in the street ,its probably not a HOBBY) , and if he's drinking (or taking drugs), good for him ! I'm mean, what else you gonna do in that situation (you can't get a job because you don't have an adress and he is probably other 60) and for the sweaty part well, as I said ,he probably has an other issue (like his feets hurting like hell, because he has walk for days or that the sole of his shoes are worned out). anyway , forget about the homeless, I still thing that the story is beautifull, because the words can be used for any blind person , I mean everybody understand that not being able to see how beautifull the day is or the smile on people face ,is terrible. Speaking of the power of word: special though for Obama.

Why are you being such a heartless person to the homeless? MANY of them have no drug or drinking problem. Maybe YOU should open YOUR eyes and see the beauty in world/people. Not everyone is lucky in life. Sometimes all they have is the generosity and love of others (sadly there are more people like you out there than not, so they don't stand much of a fighting chance).

I really enjoy the video, it means a lot. It has a very relevant and very significant message that we often miss. But the song is truly what made it easy to capture for me. Does anyone know the name of it?

I don't know for sure but I'd guess it could be Ludovico Einaudi. If you like the song check out Einaudi at youtube anyway, you'd like his music as well!!!!

Who cares if it's a ripoff... the fact is this and the original video is touching, but still points to the fact that Advertising is a matter of proper wording. The original video is too long and boring anyways, this is much more concise.

Two things here. One, it's Scotland, so it's actually pissing down and grey. And two, if he's a sweaty, he's probably blind drunk, not actually sightless.

I don't care if this man is scamming people into thinking he's blind or drinking or doing drugs or anything. The important message here is not him. It is the woman who helps him. She sees someone in need but she doesn't just toss a few coppers in his tin and go on her way. She stops, kneels down, and helps a fellow human being in the best way she knows how. There are angels everywhere who are truly willing to help others. Don't ignore the fact that whoever she was, she cared enough to go out of her way to do something for someone with whom she had no relation. That is what this video is trying to promote.

this is a very fascinating clip because you see that one person can change someones perspective about things and change the life of someone. There are so many people out there without a home and this is one person who helped someone who has a disability get money! Once you watch it, it makes you think differently about things and do different things than you have before.
