World Hunger

I drive past the Ballard food bank every day. I see the lines. What can be done? Here is a link to the world hunger education service. • Even in the United States, 46 percent of African-American children and 49 percent of Latino children are considered chronically hungry. Heifer International has asked bloggers to speak up about this today. Here is a link to that.

D., thanks for sharing those links. The numbers you cited are ghastly. Something has to change, and mainly it's our hearts and minds. We have to decide one by one that we are going to set out to make a true difference in the world by eliminating poverty. It's so sad to me that it exists at all. It boils down to greed and selfishness.

If anyone who reads this wants to give to Heifer International along with this event, please go here: http://budurl.com/buteam
