Hunger and homeless

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

I find it utterly disgusting that anyone in the United States of America has got to go hungry or does not have a decent place to live. To put in perspective, 16 million children in the United States of America go hungry everyday. Thatís basically the size of the state of Iowa 5 1/2 times. (Iowa's population is 3.2 million people).

People who are homeless ... I honestly don't know where to begin with this. ...

In closing, here is what you do ... wake up tomorrow and don't eat the whole day. ...

Then, to complicate the situation, you have to look for a place to live.

Frightening, isn't it?
