I recently moved into a beautiful, culturally diverse Chicago community. When I take my daily walks, I pay particular attention to how people interact with each other. Many are families with young children and teens; but a lot are older citizens who are in the prime of their lives. Of all the negative news over the past few years, especially in Chicago, many may have lost faith in humanity. For those, I ask that you step outside your living quarters, take a stroll throughout your community, and engage your fellow citizens.

As I worked out, I glanced up at the television playing in the gym. There it was, that thirty-second commercial about children in under-developed countries starving. I became overwhelmed with sadness and guilt. I waste a lot of food. Either I forget I bought a perishable item or I just don’t want to eat the item anymore. My heart breaks for as I am a mother and grandmother and I could not imagine my children or their children starving.
