On Hunger

Not to be a downer; just something to remember as you pass the turkey leg or open a present…

    more food than many get for a week.

  • If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the millions who will not survive this week.
  • If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep (not to mention a computer on which to read this), you are richer than 75% of the people in this world.
  • Each day, 30,100 children die from mostly preventable and treatable causes such as diarrhea, acute respiratory infections or malaria. Malnutrition and hunger are associated with over half of those deaths.
