More than 16,000 children die every day from hunger-related causes. Yet, few of these deaths are due to outright starvation. Instead, children who are "only" mildly or moderately undernourished suffer from immune systems that are unable to fight common

I, and all my family and friends, have been so very blessed to have always had enough to eat. My heart goes out to those who don't, here in the US and all around the world. I just donated three brown grocery bags full of all kinds of groceries to the local food bank. I don't have a lot, but I'm happy to share so someone else can not go hungry, either.

Rosemary, this petition is now closed.You signed on November 13, 2008.
Cher thank you so much for posting. Every child deserves nutritious food. Millions of children are dying of starvation, when there is plenty of food to share globally. Tragically as demonstrated in Haiti and other countries, food donations end up sitting in warehouses. Red tape or barriers by beaurocrats or rebel leaders is the real reason children die of starvation. We cannot allow this to continue to happen.
On a local level, I support our food bank and offer what I can knowing children in my community go to school hungry! This is not acceptable!
Like Leann we are Blessed with a family who cares to share and help us when we are in need. Sharing with others is what I know we are called upon to do.

Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day; teach him how to fish and he'll never go hungry again.
Giving these women the education they need and the financing so they can start their own little businesses would go a very long way toward eliminating hunger among children. This would be the best sort of foreign aid.

Approximately 70% of polled Americans designate themselves at Christian. If this is true, are they really Christians or are they so-called Christians? I ask this question, due to the teachings of Christ.

Correct me if my memory has faltered, but, after having read the Bible gospels numerous times, Christ was a person who administered to the poor, fed the hungry and cured the sick, among his other charitable endeavors.

I'm not seeing Christ's _reason for being_ portrayed in today's co-called Christians. Obviously, it isn't true with conservatives, who by and large call themselves followers of Christ. They worship everything he hated.
The only time he became upset, was in the marketplace. He caterwauled, 'Don't make my father's house a marketplace'.
'Caterwaul' is my new word for today. It means: protest or complain noisily.

These extreme, conservative Christians are such phonies.
