How many times have you said or heard that phrase? Simple enough statement but not so simple for the many children and people worldwide who know not how, or when, or where their next meal will come from.
With the drastic downturn in the economy and the consequential soar in food prices, coupled with wars, droughts and unfavourable natural conditions, the health and lives of MILLIONS of children are threatened on a daily basis.
Although many people may associate starving children with Ethiopia, it is most definitely a worldwide epidemic...and within the very borders of the prosperous United States, where people throw away food without reservation every single day, there are many children starving...to death.
So the next time you ask your child if he/she is hungry, and they respond "I'm starving", think twice about the power and reality of those words.
Indifference is not an option. Let's join in making hunger and poverty history.
