Hunger in America

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2013/05/24/u-s-stands-out-as-a-rich-country-where-a-growing-minority-say-they-cant-afford-food/

(snip)

The United States is an outlier from this pattern. Despite being the richest country in the survey, nearly a quarter of Americans (24%) say they had trouble putting food on the table in the past 12 months. This is up from just 16% who reported such deprivation in 2007, the year before the Great Recession began.

(end snip)

Look at the three people next to you in church. Or in the park. Or in school. One of them is hungry. One of them can't afford food at some point. Maybe it is you (me). And yet the very rich are getting richer and richer. Wall street is booming, and they can't afford to help you anymore.
