The Irony of Starvation

I am sitting here watching TV and eating my evening meal.
On the TV is the BBC News showing starving children in Ethiopia.
I finish my meal but there is food left on the plate as I am full.
The uneaten food will go in the bin.
Unfortunately that is the way of the world Sad

Yes fine, we can sit here and worry about it, but who in heavens name will put their political ass on the line, and really do something about it. Not very many I fancy, there's no political mileage in it, other than forming interminable committees to look into it, or whatever fancy name they give these "no action" talking shops.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: The Irony of Starvation

I'd just count your blessings Strat, the food on your plate eaten or not couldn't do anything for those poor kids.
If you hadn't bought it would have been sold of cheap or put in the bin.
Most of the money given to these countries seems to line the pockets of corrupt governments.
Sad. But as you say the way of the world.
