Hunger

I was on my way home the other day, and I was so hungry. I had a package of frozen turkey in my bag that was for supper and I was thinking about how long it would take to defrost and how hungry I was. It was in this moment that I thought of all the hungry people in the city and I imagined myself as being a hungry person with no money, standing alone in a city surrounded by people eating and I could feel how alone I was in my hunger. And the question screamed at me – what sort of society are we, what sort of world are we, that we accept that we can eat and others can’t? Why do we agree to this? This is a beautiful world, a plentiful world. Let’s work together to make it so for everyone.
