Food riots around the world have grabbed our attention. Slowly but surely pouring of news articles, and TV and radio coverages only started to unravel the depth of this problem which is not new, but only beginning to get into "well-fed's" eye sight.
James Carroll observes, "Not only do the well fed fail to perceive the despair and fear that hunger breeds, until it explodes in riots of rage, but the well fed are equally incapable of seeing the causal link between their own privilege and the suffering of the dispossessed - although the substitution of bio-fuel corn production for the growing of edible wheat makes that link unusually apparent. Filling gas tanks of automobiles matters, in effect, more than filling bellies of children."
Hunger affects us all
