A couple of days ago I wrote about “A Place At The Table,” a documentary film now in theaters and also on Amazon.com. This is something that everyone should see. As a result of my writing about that film, a friend sent me a You Tube link about a gentleman in South Central Los Angeles named Ron Finley. Mr. Finley demonstrates for us what one person can do; how one vision, one heart can make our world a better place. We have a real problem with hunger in our country. We cannot turn a blind eye any longer. Good people, hard-working people, people who have hopes and dreams for themselves and their children do not have enough food to eat. And when they do have food, more often than not, it is the wrong kind of food–food that is filled with empty calories and little nutrition. It is this kind of food that makes people fat and sick. Obesity is linked to food with calories but no nutrition. Ron Finley has an answer to that problem. It’s simple. It’s cheap (a lot cheaper than the health costs of subsisting on junk food) and if you are like me, I’ll bet it will fill your heart and your head with your own ideas about how you can create a better world by starting with your community.
Watch the You Tube video and tell me what you think!
