Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Henry Van Dyke


To desire and strive to be of some service to the world, to aim at doing something which shall really increase the happiness and welfare and virtue of humankind—this is a choice which is possible for all of us; and surely it is a good haven to sail for.

—Henry Van Dyke, American educator and author (1852–1933)
