Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Hunger QOTD: Dalai Lama

"Peace, in the sense of absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain or torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free."

The absence of war can be preferable to some people even if they lack all of the essentials to survive long term. Human rights are desirable to me, but they are a creation of enlightenment thinking and not assumed in the teachings of Jesus the Messiah.

The Dalai Lama, a person who is believed by followers to be a reincarnated Buddhist Bodhisattva. I prefer the words of Jesus or Christians from a Christian organization.
