Jesus taught that where our treasure is, there will be our heart, also. If we agree with the great Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, our hearts are surely in a good place. Our world would be a far kinder and much more gentle place if we would demonstrate our wealth in these treasures.
The ugly truth is that we allow over 22% of the children in our country to go hungry on a regular basis. There’s no excuse for that. There is absolutely no way to justify it.
As morally repugnant as that truth is, we have the power to change it. Ending hunger in our country, ending hunger around the world, is a monumental task. But, it can be accomplished. The question is simply about when will we start.
I say we begin the journey now.
Let’s start today. Let’s commit to take one step, even a small step, every day until every child has the food they need to live a healthy and productive life.
Working together we can end childhood hunger. Working together we can change the world forever.
