Researchers on world nutrition report that for 2/3 of our population lack of food daily. This class of people does not experience the slightest twinge of abdominal rumbling which may occur if a meal is skipped. There is also a group of people in deep pain, sunken-eyes, emaciating bodies with a type of hunger which is virtually starvation. In reality, every day, at least 1500 people die of hunger. To further compound this situation, billions of dollars are spent annually on a variety of weight loss products and programs because 1/3 of the world’s population is bursting with 75% of its food supply. For some of us who are among the fortunate that physical hunger is not a routine experience, it may be difficult to appreciate the impact of today’s readings but try to fit in.
