Instead of filling your belly, pretend you are one of the millions of people all over the world who go hungry every day. Imagine the totality of hunger: the hollowness in a growling stomach; the futility of simmering bitter weeds in dirty water desperate for nourishment; the anxiety of not knowing where the next meal will come from to feed your children.
Once a week, give away a meal to someone who is truly hungry. Swap your sense of fullness for the emotional richness of making a difference to one person. Giving this gift delivers hope where there is little.
Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant? — Henry David Thoreau
