I’ve been thinking most of the day about my contribution to Blog Action Day. But, try as I might, I cannot think of anything more profound than the title of this post. I want poverty to end, particularly the extreme poverty that kills 25,000 persons a day.
I’ve tried to explain to my son, Tanner, who has a burden for this issue, that, indeed, enough food exists for everyone in the world. The problem is getting it to the places that need it most. That, to an 8-year-old, is almost incomprehensible.
To me, it’s just depressing.
But depression isn’t the answer. Action is. So I urge you to get involved, even make a donation.
