Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


I Was Hungry So I Slept

There were many times as a child and adult that I was forced to go without food for a day or so because I didn't have the money for it or some stupid people in the orphanage thought we need punishment because someone didn't do some @#$#@* chore....I think I will not speak too much about this as it's still upsetting as you can see.

Anyway. This is America. We should take care of our children so they don't go to bed or school or anywhere hungry.
Don't eat for a day or two and you'll understand the pangs. Go more days and soon you get about numb.

  1. I just took the pledge and shared. I was going to donate instantly but there's no PayPal option, so I'll have to do it through the mail.

    You're right, it is a really, really good cause. I hope more people pick up on it.
