Goals for a New Millennium

In elementary school we learned the 3 basic needs in life were food, shelter, and clothing. The times may have changed, but these needs still remain; and in my opinion the order has too. For this reason I selected to work on 'eradicating extreme poverty and hunger' as my final project in 1701. Although everyone is aware of the people in poor nations struggling to receive what we take for granted, it can be difficult to understand the magnitude of the problem when you’re half way around the world. However, every so often we stumble upon reminders of how 854 million people are not as fortunate as us.

“Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.? _Mahatma Gandhi


…Our ship may be coming in
You're weak but not giving in
To the cries and the wails of the valley below
Your ship may be coming in
You're weak but not giving in
And you'll fight it you'll go out fighting all of them…

_A Better Son/Daughter . Rilo Kiley
