Americans go hungry ~ Dennis Rakiey
In the article on Energy, I mentioned that the increase in the amount of individuals living in poverty has doubled in the last 39 years to 46 million. Numbers on a page are impersonal; we become mesmerized by figures and statistics do not tell the story of human suffering. So, I have included a link to an article titled “Going hungry in America…” According to a Gallup poll just released, 18 percent of Americans say at times they couldn’t afford the food they needed. The article talks about six individuals who have had difficulty putting food on the table. This is not some kind of abstract problem but is very real.
