"Starvation of either creature or person is an abomination of humanity. The cruelty to both creature and child alike is that starvation still exists today, and that it is allowed to happen at all. It offends all that is decent and good about the purpose of any creature's existence in this world. It's continued presence is a scourge upon the senses of all that is good and lessens the dignity of mankind as he tries to distinguish himself from that of the wild beast of the forest.
Whether one is an Ibizan hound or children of the African war zones left to starve, it is simply obscene to the sensibilities of any reasonably-minded person that such horrors should still be allowed to exist in 2013 where food plates are empty on one side of the world while they are filled to the brim on the other.
I'm sure that you are all acquainted with the biblical account of Jesus feeding the 5,000 as he asked them to pass around the communal basket of five loaves and two fish. Let me tell you, that the miracle wasn't the feeding of 5,000 with five loaves and two fish: the true miracle was in showing mankind the 'possibility' that if they each pass around their basket of food after they have eaten their fill to the next person in the world, then there will be 'enough' food to feed all the people in the world. The moot question facing mankind today is which would represent the greater miracle: would it be a much greater miracle to achieve 'selfless sharing' throughout the world so that all might be fed than to feed 5,000 to their fill with five loaves and two fish?"
