AN URBAN MAMA'S TAKE ON NURTURING HER FAMILY

global food crisis

Children like yours and mine are starving to death; yet, everywhere I look there are obese people.


How do you deal with/process stories and photos about starving children?

How?
This is so hard.
First I curl up in the fetal position, then I cry, then I curse biofuels and shake my fist at corrupt governments that have abused Africa for centuries, then I am plagued with guilt for not being a better human being, then I look for ways to try and make a difference, then I look for something to cheer me, because I am useless depressed.

Thank you for sharing your process with me Natalie. Your words helped me DO something and reminded me that I too am useless depressed. XO
