You weren’t planning on enjoying your gluttonous, genocide-centric federal holiday without feeling the slightest bit guilty about it, were you? Because First Lady Michelle Obama wants to totally bum you out:
Tomorrow, many of us will gather around the table with family and friends to give thanks over a feast of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy — and let’s not forget pumpkin pie!
But for some in this country, the feast will not be as bountiful. In fact, it won’t be much of a feast at all. Hunger is on the rise in America — hitting its highest levels in nearly 15 years. A recent report released by the USDA reveals that in 2008 an estimated 1.1 million children were living in households that experienced hunger multiple times over the past year.
Great. Now how am I supposed to enjoy my fifth serving of farm factory-produced dark meat and not think about hungry kids in Appalachia? Who does she think she is, Jimmy Carter?
Fortunately, M-Dawg offers us this – serve.gov — which affords the opportunity to feed your fellow neighbors… that is, if you’re not traveling to see/hosting malodorous relatives. Gobble gobble, good patriot!
