It was a scrappy effort in itself to beat back hunger and win the peace after World War II.
Today, we need to duplicate this kind of effort . Do not forget the hungry, starving and malnourished people around the world. The most important step we can take to help these people and to build peace is to get them the foundation they need most of all: food. Whether it's Afghanistan, Sudan, Yemen, or Haiti, food is the essential basis of all things for their society, for what it is to become.
When we see the reports of malnourished children and low food supplies because of lack of funding, we should be outraged; and as in 1947, we should do something about it. Fight hunger both at home and abroad.
