Recently we received this in our email. The subject said it's a Film Festival Winner. After watching it, we understood why. And we saw what hunger is from another perspective.
Right now, more than 500 million people are living in 'absolute poverty' and more than 15 million children die of hunger every year.
World Health Organisation estimates that one-third of the population is underfed and another third is starving.
This week I'm combining this post with my thankful post.
I have a confession to make. I used to be a fussy eater. Thankfully, that has changed. Or rather, I'm still improvising LOL! I have to admit that at times I am still fussy...but I'm getting there. So when I received this email about hunger and hope, I am reminded once again of not taking provision for granted.
I have a confession to make too. I'm a fussy eater (just like LS hee...). At times I do kick up a fuss over my kibbles, wanting to eat LS' food instead. I know I should be thankful for having food and shelter when many of our friends are hungry and homeless. But LS said it's no fault of mine. She made the mistake of giving in to me all those times but now she's more resolved on being more firm with me. I'm thankful she knows better.
Oh wait, does that mean from now onwards I have to beg harder for human food?
Does anyone of you have eating issues like me? Or do you just eat anything that's edible?
