Food facts

Got this from "Bread for the World"

1. 800 million people in the world go hungry every day.
2. 12 million chidlren in the United States have to skip meals or eat less than they want so that their families can make ends meet
3. 6 million children die each year from causes related to hunger.
4. The basic health needs of the wordl's poorest people could be met for less money than what animal lovers in the United States and Europe spend on pet food each year.

I am more surprised of point 4 than the rest. So many expensive pet food nowadays and so many animal rights group. So, where's hungry children rights group? Not that animal rights group is wrong. Yet, I feel that the plight of animals are being advanced far more often than hungry children's rights.

Let's be mindful of what we do bearing in mind that there are lots less fortunate people in the world and be thankful of what we have. Be able to save money to help other poor people should be in our mind.
