What is hunger?
I can use that word in lots of different ways to mean lots of different things...
I hunger for good book reviews.
I hunger for a bowl of cereal in the morning.
I hunger for more time with my hubby and darling diva.
All of these hungers are true. If you're an author, yes you want good reviews. If you ate early the night before, your stomach is making itself known and who doesn't need more family time...
Is that the only face of hunger? Have you seen real hunger in your lifetime?
Have you seen the mother digging through the dumpster for food to feed her child?
Have you seen the family of three, four, five or more share a brick of Ramen noodles as their dinner?
Have you seen the child whose school lunch seems to him/her manna of the gods, because it is probably the only meal they will see that day?
I have seen hunger, I have lived hunger and I have felt hunger.
My oath: Everyday I will fight to reduce the hunger of the world. From the littlest task to the biggest undertaking, I will do what I can to help those who starve. Hunger must not win.
