And i am the lucky one: I will have food again. I don’t (yet) have to make a choice between paying rent and buying food. I (for now) can still afford both. Aside from the fear that one day in the near future, i, too, will join the ranks of the hungry in this country – for poverty is only one downsizing away for many of us – it is outrageous that our moral priorities are so backwards in this country.
So, i am calling on Senators Boxer and Feinstein to help pass a budget that reflects their moral standing: Protecting the poor and taxing those who can afford it. I am also calling on others to join the fast to bring morality back to the US.
