Quote of the Day: David Beckmann
"The sun shines on everyone, rich and poor alike. If it were up to politicians in Washington or investors in New York, maybe the sun wouldn't shine without price. But the sun does shine on everybody, so there's fruit for Africans and beautiful weather than even homeless people can enjoy. Joy, energy, and determination well up within people. These, too, are free gifts from God."
—Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, in Exodus from Hunger
