Eating is Not a Luxury

Today is a departure from my regular tone. I guess, since I’m posting I won’t apologize. Sometimes a quick fact grips you.

Like: In 2010 48.8 million Americans lived in food insecure households. 32.6 million adults and 16.2 million children.

“What?!?” She screamed holding her hands to her head.

Healthy food should NOT be a choice or a hardship.

There is an abundance – or perhaps at this juncture of crazy – there SHOULD be an abundance – of nutritious, sustainable food that allows all beings to thrive.

We as a culture, as a nation, as a world have made a travesty of caring for ourselves and our fellow human beings.

Eating should not be a luxury. Why has it become one?

Reflecting on basic goodness, how can we allow change?

I believe we can shift – shift our hearts to include all people at our dinner table. There is not a person in this world who does not deserve to eat.

Just to contemplate this, will begin the shift.
