… almost one billion people worldwide will go to bed hungry tonight, half of them children. On average, 5 million children die of starvation each year before reaching the age of five.  This year, that number will be much higher.  For poor children at the margin, a large increase in grain prices is nothing less than a death sentence…  One word from Obama could end this madness.
