Patriotism Despite All Odds

By Simon King

I met this beggar while travelling through France. I noticed him because of his bright clothing, in the national colours. I gave him some change, and my water bottle, and found that he spoke English. He told me that he bought them because they inspired the people of France to give more willingly, because he essentially wears their flag. This inspirational display of patriotism and trust in the community struck a chord, and I asked him for his portrait.
