It has been a couple of days since I have posted. I have gone back to work and I will use the next four days to get caught up.
This is the Second day of 31 Social Issues and I will be blogging about Hunger within The United States. Since the US is considered one of the richest countries in the world, the previous statement is so ludicrous to me. We produce more than enough food in the US to feed our hungry. But, I believe our government is more concerned with feeding the poor and hungry of other nations. We have a real need in our own country. We need to take care of our own before we hand our provisions out to other countries.

DAY ONE -WORLD HUNGER
With my conservative viewpoints, most people would believe that I was against every social injustice in their world. Not, always the case.
In this day and age, there should never be a reason for world hunger. One definition of world hunger is the want and scarcity of food in a country. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that over 870 million people of the 7.1 billion people in the world, or one in eight were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 210-2012.
Children are the largest number of victims of undernutrition. Due to their undernurtition, childen suffer over 160 days of illnesses. Undernutrition is responsible for at least over 5 million deaths a year within the world.

The total Homeless population for the State of Alabama is over 4,600 people including over 500 Veterans. No one deserves to be homeless especially not someone who put their life in danger to defend our nation. In the Shoals Area, including Franklin, Lauderdale and Colbert County there are over 200 children. In my opinion, that is a travesty and an embarrassment.

So, I forgive and every day I become stronger and more at peace. Lastly, forgiving someone doesn't mean that I forget. It just means that I won't put myself out there to be hurt like I did again.

I am back again! DeWayne and I have had a lot of things going on the last few months. I went back to work full time, his sister was tested to see if she was a match for him for a kidney transplant. She was a blood match. About a month ago, we went to Vanderbilt with her to support her while she was getting the rest of her testing done. She found out about three weeks ago that she is a diabetic, which keeps her from being a donor for him. So, needless to say we have had a lot going on the last few months. But, hopefully I am back now...woo hoo! See you all tomorrow.
