#66 Not having to suffer a famine
Hello. What a wonderful day to be alive. Saw a fantastic thunderstorm yesterday. Our planet is full of vibrant beauty.
I have always been lucky to have food on the table which most of has been lucky to grow up with. I have had one encounter with starvation in my life and it was during a survival training to the military 2 days without proper food surviving on what the woods had to give us. Eating moss I must say is not my thing I love more fresh vegetables from my garden.
I came to think today about the old days when a drought created massive famines and how millions of people migrated because of it.
Today I wanted to talk to you about famines a alien word in the developed world today. We need to know that it is there even today in our society.
So why should we be grateful for not having to suffer through a famine?
- We don’t have to starve.
- We don’t have to suffer through it.
- That we are constantly being able to help more and more people out of the danger of a famine.
- That have food on our table.
- For our farmers.
- for being able to help people that suffers a famine.
- For not having to worry about having enough food to survive.
- For being born where you were.
You should really celebrate every day you have food on your table. It is incredible how fast people forget about the old days after the famines that made a lot of the North American’s ancestors move here that we live today.
So when you sit at the table give thanks for what you have on the table. Something I think the Christians is great with.
We should all give gratitude to the food we have. It is the only way humans can survive today. We need our food it is very precious to us. So when you hear about a famine in today’s society maybe you should reach out a hand to those people since we are so lucky to have it available.
“Americans are blessed with great plenty; we are a generous people and we have a moral obligation to assist those who are suffering from poverty, disease, war and famine.” -Adam Schiff
