Day Twenty-two

As we've been eating so much less for the last twenty-two days, my mind and heart have constantly been turned toward those who are less fortunate. Most of the time I envision families in developing countries that are overworked, underpaid, and most definitely hungry. Hunger, though, is not something reserved for other countries or even for the homeless population. St. Louis is a very hungry city according to recent studies. Ryan read recently that according to the Food Research and Action Center, St. Louis is the 11th hungriest city in the US. According to this acticle from, the state ranks 5th in the nation for hungry children. This is a good reminder that poverty, hunger, and homelessness are right at our doorstep.
