charities, foodbanks and church pantries are doing
more than ever before, but they can't keep up
with the need. We can never end hunger only through
the wonderful work of local charities. Like other
Western democracies, we must end our national
problem of hunger through national and political
leadership. Charity is nice for some things, but
not as a way to feed a nation. We don't protect
our national security through charity, and we
shouldn't protect our families and children that
should begin at home, but should not stay there.

is in the heart of man, and righteousness in the
path of men. Pity the man who has lost his path
and does not follow it and who has lost his heart
and does not know how to recover it. When people's
dogs and chicks are lost they go out and look for
them and yet the people who have lost their hearts
do not go out and look for them. The principle of
self-cultivation consists in nothing but trying
to look for the lost heart."
-- Mencius (4th century B.C.)
“Charity is commendable; everyone should be charitable.
But justice aims to create a social order in which,
if individuals choose not to be charitable, people
still don’t go hungry, unschooled or sick without
care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim
and personal wealth; justice depends on commitment
instead of circumstance.”
-- Bill Moyers
