Just imagine...

Harry Chapin was many things, with a hefty dose of political activism included with his musical talent. He touched on a number of political issues over the years, but the one he kept coming back to, again and again, was hunger. "There's enough food to feed everyone on this planet twice over. Why, why, why are people going hungry?"

This time of year, Harry would always talk about Thanksgiving food drives, when schools would ask kids to bring in canned goods and other food to share with the hungry. "Just imagine," Harry would suggest, a principal who would stand up after a successful food drive and after the holiday and say "What we're gonna talk about is 'What are those people gonna eat next week?'"

People are hungry all year. Thanks for remembering to share what you can, when you can.
