Not as in, dinner is late.
Not as in, Ramon noodles for the rest of the week.
As in, it's been days since you last ate and it wasn't by choice.
I had someone here tell me yesterday that "no one starves in America". Clearly, not true; we have people with anorexia, child abuse cases, etc.
But they meant, "nobody has to go without food in America if they don't want to".
Do you agree?
I don't. My hunger all occurred when I was in HS, sliding off to spend the night huddled next to a car so as to avoid whatever foster home I was then assigned to. Did not happen every night, or even a lot of nights, but it happened. It never occurred to me to try dumpster diving for food, and I doubt I could have anyway.
How easy is dumpster diving for an old person, do you think? Someone in a wheelchair?
So....have you ever been hungry?
Do you think anyone starves in America?
