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.
