Starvation is the characteristic of some people not having enough food to eat. It is not the characteristic of there not being enough food to eat. —Amartya Sen
We know there is enough food in the world to feed everyone. We do not need to produce more food to end hunger in our lifetime. All that is necessary to end hunger is simply better distribution of the food already being produced.
Achieving better distribution is currently hindered by the immorality of those of us with the power to stand up for the hungry and undernourished of world. The lack of true global community which arises from our superficial and spurious spirituality is directly related to the unnecessary deaths of 25,000 of our sisters and brothers every single day.
This generation has the awesome opportunity to end hunger in our lifetime, yet we are too morally bankrupt to even care. We are far to busy mindlessly spending our way to Hell.
