American Hunger

Earlier today I shared a segment on my YouTube channel that was inspired by a clip that has gone viral that presents a satirical look on food insecurity in the US.

What the US can look like from the outside.

If you haven’t noticed, I am driven to help people pursue deeper conversations about things that sometimes make us uncomfortable. And I know that in any top five lists for US citizens the perception of this being a rich nation bumped up against examples of extreme poverty makes people uncomfortable and in many ways…defensive.

Take a moment to watch the clip and then come on YouTube or come back over here so we can talk about it.
