Broken promises?

The quote ‘Better a broken promise than none at all’ by Mark Twain got me wondering if most us would agree with such a claim.

Danger ahead!

A cousin of mine who came for a brief visit from abroad once said that a safe return home from a day spent out in Addis Ababa is yet another day survived from the dangers that corner the streets of the city.

Should I or should I not give money to beggars? That is the question that pesters my mind as I walk the streets of Addis every day.
