Starvation in the World
I enjoyed the presentation, as best as anyone can enjoy a presentation on the topic of starvation. The bags of rice seemed like a very good solution, especially with the volunteer work, with people who honestly wanted to do good in the world. I applaud their efforts in this manner, and agree that something had to be done about the food shortages in some parts of the world.
I think the overarching issue about starvation is the fact that there is enough food in the world to support everyone. Infact, there is more than enough food in the world to support everyone. A law states that so long as there is more food than the population, the population will grow to fill this need. However, in this idea, food production is increased to help pad the gap between abundence and just barely getting by.
I think the presentation was well thought out, and more importantly, heartfelt from the group. they seemed interested in it, and going to a factory/packing station where the rice was actually made was a nice touch. It showed they put a lot of effort into their project, and took it very seriously. Anything less than a A for the group would simply be mean! I'm looking at you Derek! =D
