Read This Article If You Enjoy Eating
By Timothy Ward
I'd like to start today by asking everyone who enjoys eating to raise
his/her hand. That's it? Come on, I know more of you love eating than
that. Don't be shy. If you love stuffing your face with sweets and junk
food until you look like a squirrel hording food for the winter, throw
your hand up. If you live for all-you-can-eat rib night at Billy's
Arcade & BBQ, throw your hand up. If your midnight snack lasts 2 hours
and includes more than one course, put your hand in the air and wave it
like you just don't care. I'm not here to judge anyone today, I just
want to know where my food lovers are.
That's much better! I'm seeing a lot more hands in the air now. There's
still a gentleman in the rear who, judging from his bodily proportions,
looks to be a regular at the Shoney's All Day-Everyday Buffet whose
hand is not up, but if he doesn't feel comfortable participating then
he doesn't have too. Or maybe he's just to full to move. Whatever the
case I'm glad most of you decided to play along. You may now put your
We have established that almost everyone here today loves eating. This
is no big surprise. Since our bodies need nourishment to continue
functioning, logically the best way to keep us eating is make the
process enjoyable. Whether you believe a Supreme Being made us this way
or you believe we evolved this way over time is a matter of personal
opinion. I am not about to get involved in that discussion. I didn't
bring my riot gear with me today, and quite frankly, I tend to giggle
uncontrollably every time someone arguing for evolution uses the term
'Homo Erectus'. So we'll just agree that eating is necessary and
enjoyable. A win-win situation. At least for those of us fortunate
enough to have access to appropriate amounts of food on a daily basis.
We don't always like to think about it but people starve to death
everyday. Millions of people the world over are hungry and don't know
if they will ever eat again. Let's take a moment to let that sink in.
There are people who don't know if they will eat another morsel of
food-EVER. Whole families with nothing to eat, lying around waiting to
die. Many of them wanting to die because of the intensity of the hunger
pains. Any of us who have ever went half a day without eating know how
miserable it feels to be hungry. Now imagine going days-even
weeks-without eating. Or worse imagine watching your children writhe
around in pain from hunger. Imagine the powerlessness these parents
must feel. It's truly a horrible thought and an even more horrible
Any of us fortunate enough to be born in a land where food is plentiful
and readily available have an obligation to help our hungry fellowman.
This doesn't always take money. A simple prayer at night for all the
world's hungry costs nothing and can work wonders. The Internet is home
to countless websites that allow you to donate food simply by visiting
other websites or clicking on banners. Volunteering for local charities
that help feed the hungry in your own area is a great way to help out
and get some self-fulfillment. If you do have a little money to spare
there are numerous charities that you can donate to that are not scams
and really do help feed the world's hungry. Whatever the method you
decide to use remember that the starving citizens of our planet
appreciate your sacrifice. Your time or money may make the difference
in their or their children's life. So please join the fight against
hunger. You can make a difference.
