What does it take to change the world? How much effort must be exerted before we can begin to see positive movement toward justice? Do our efforts really move us toward the place where we can hope to heal the pain of our broken world?
Is it possible to achieve a world without hunger in our lifetime?
I truly believe we can end the scourge of hunger in our lifetime. I know it’s possible. But I also know it is only possible if enough of us who care come to the place where we make it a priority. We have to get to the place where we really believe we can eradicate hunger, then act accordingly.
Peter Rosset wrote that, “The way people think about hunger is the greatest obstacle to ending it.” I totally agree.
Ending hunger in our lifetime will take a global movement of folks, all of us totally committed to creating the “greatest spiritual explosion” the world has ever experienced, the day hunger is eradicated forever. I, for one, know we can reach that day, and I am doing all I can to make it happen.
As Margaret Mead so eloquently stated, “Never doubt a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Let’s make history. Let’s change the world.
Let’s work together in a movement that creates a world of true justice, a world where hunger is just a memory, where not even a single child has to cry herself to sleep from the pain of an empty stomach. Join the movement. Working together we can make it happen.
