World Food Day

As always, we are one day behind every major event that gives a name to itself marking the importance of the day...

The reason we do this of course is less about the fact that we're actually behind the news, too busy to pay attention, or that the event isn't meaningful enough to us to write about it on the day it's rather because we feel that every day deserves the significance to be called "World Food Day."

The simple questions are: Did you have a quick breakfast this morning? A light, or somewhat satisfying lunch on the go? And have you pushed yourself away from the dinner table feeling sated, if not a little over full?

Guess what, you're blessed!

Because billions of people across the globe can count the number of meals they have each day with one finger, and many more are left hungry including small children and nursing mothers.

Let's show this gloomy world economy what we're made of, by donating even a dollar to the United Nations link above.

We know that if you're reading this blog, you are part of the select group on this planet who can afford to give a little to aid the plight of others. We also know that because you're reading our blog that you're part of the blessed few who have big hearts and open minds when it comes to thinking about people less fortunate than yourself.

Today is officially the day after World Food Day, but every day that people go hungry is an opportunity for us to make a difference.
