Can you think of any time when you truly felt the pain in your stomach?
No food was available, and you had no idea how you would rise above it.
When you look into the mirror each morning before you start your day,
Remove your image and replace it with someone else’s that need a meal today.
Some of us look back at this moment in our lives as if it were a million years ago,
Now as adults with our busy lives and families, someone else is going through what you have, but will you open the door?
I know this is an issue that looks insurmountable, and quite frankly you are asking, where do I start,
Donating your time to serve others, donating food, donating any extra monies to your local bank, is always a very good place to start.
As we come to the end of year 2018, and embark upon year 2019,
Let’s Squash Hunger, and not only make it just a DREAM!
It requires the committed efforts by everyone: politicians, community leaders, schools, colleges, churches, and especially YOU!
Let your likeness be known throughout the land for DOING, not for what you would like to DO.
We live in a geographic area with excessive wealth, technology, and some of the brightest of the bright,
Now close your eyes, and imagine that family not knowing where their meal will come from each night.
Hunger have no discrimination towards: gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and for certain the color of your skin,
This is the one common thread in the universe that places us ALL on the same team, and we must be committed to WIN!
With the look in your eyes you arrive to this question: Why should I take on such a tall task, and know it isn’t too inviting?
Yet, I would like to take this opportunity to remind all of you, any battle that you want to win, is always worth FIGHTING!
I stand before you now with my band of committed sisters and brothers,
We need you to make a stand with us, and TOGETHER……….. “LET”S SQUASH HUNGER!”
