I Wondered Where This Child Was Going, Then It Became Clear. He's Hungry.

Have you ever had to make these sorts of choices? I'm going to go out on a limb here and say probably not.

Too many children have to work much harder than they should need to in order to eat each day. Of this population, too many are unable to eat enough despite their hard work.


It's hard for someone like you or me to imagine what it must be like to go through life like that. To be sure, it's a major privilege that we don't have to. But that empathy gap is probably one reason why it's hard to marshal the resources or change to address child hunger. The video below does a great job showing us what it could be like to move through life as one of these children.

If you found this eye-opening, be sure to share it with your friends. The more people know what it's like, the better the chance we'll get together for a solution.

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.
