On the homefront

Ending world hunger is certainly a cause that is worthy when put in the perspective that we are a global society but I can remember a time not so long ago when ending homelessness and hunger in America was forefront. While UNCW students should be commended for participating in this project maybe the boxes should be addressed somewhere closer to home. Until we have fixed what is broken here at home, how in good faith are you going out to cure the ills of the rest of the world? I see that no matter how educated our society becomes that we still cannot see the forest for the trees. Instead of packing food bound for Liberia, they should be packing food in the meals on wheels trucks and going into the impoverished areas of our own nation to feed our hungry and homeless. So this is what higher education is bringing to our nation, blindness and denial that we have our own issues to address. Fixing our problems? Start at home folks.
