the f-word: famine is the real obscenity

Signing a petition seems such a paltry, insignificant act when measured against the massive starvation in Somalia. I remind myself of what Gandhi said: Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.

Please sign the petition to G20 decision makers, demanding action to end the famine in Somalia.

The petition page says, "Drought is an act of nature. Famine is man made." Right now, drought may be largely human-made, too, as climate change causes more land to become desert. One thing's for sure, though. There is enough food on this planet to feed everyone.

If signing petitions and making small donations are all we can do, then signing and donating it is.

Petition here.
