Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: President Barack Obama

"When the rungs on the ladder of opportunity grow farther and farther apart, it undermines the very essence of America—that idea that if you work hard you can make it here."

—President Barack Obama, during a July 24 speech on the economy at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill.
