Think thought think

if you tell me you are famished
I shall promptly gouge your eyes out
with a fork
you do not know what famished means

It is easy to assume that food is accessible to everyone when our table is hefty and our life beautiful. But we never know the real life of anyone and their struggles – whether it is our neighbor, friend or someone on the other side of the world.

The person right next to you could be hungry and will not say a thing. Struggles go right down to hunger. If a person isn’t hungry they can think about other things, but when they can’t find food to think, they cannot think upon another.

A child in Mozambique cannot invent what he has the capability of inventing because he has no food. A child in Forthworth, Texas cannot invent the cure that he could invent because he does not have enough food.

Hunger exists among us.

Let us end hunger in our generation, we must and we can.

Human Hungry

if you tell me you are famished

I shall promptly gouge your eyes out

with a fork

you do not know what famished means
