A true understanding of hunger is difficult. Most of us indulge in three lavish feedings a day plus snacks. Our bellies are rarely empty. When World Hunger Day rolls around, we throw in a few dollars to ease our conscience, watch a sad video that evokes compassion at church, and make plans for going out to lunch. Or we may place the World Hunger Day brown plastic bread bank on our table with good intentions to drop in extra change each day.
The Emmys are over. New fall movies and TV shows have been previewed and released. In my local listing I have many choices of movies. Those currently playing include the one about a getaway driver for mobsters; a screenwriter and wife who move from the West Coast to the South and find conflict inside and outside their relationship; a teen gang defending their turf against aliens; a school teacher who breaks all the rules; a contagious airborne killer threatening all life; bad bosses who deserve death; and a Cold War spy story.
