Day 25

We are living in a world of too much food. It's terrible to think of the people who have nothing and are starving, while here I am acknowledging all of the excess of milk containing items everywhere. On one hand there are people dying of starvation, and on the other there are people dying from eating. Both scenarios are compelling and urge a call to action. Growing up I was always told the phrase "beggars can't be choosers". I can usually relate that concept to anything in life. Somehow now, in this part of my journey, I can't relate anymore. Now I think beggars SHOULD be choosers. The people in need or have the most at stake, the most on the line, need to be not just heard but listened to. Food allergies (like world hunger) are treated like a BIG concern for someone else to deal with.
