A Few Facts
Some images may be disturbing to young viewers as it is our intent to put a real face on the human suffering war and hunger that the lack of peace in the world have caused. Viewer discretion is advised.
In our complacency, we forget about all the suffering in the world. Suffering caused by more than just war. Hunger is a worldwide problem. Climatic changes in the world have caused worldwide famine. Millions stare starvation straight in the face. For millions more it is a struggle just to survive. Even in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, millions will go hungry.
This is where the greed, anger, jealousy, and personal ambitions of a few have led us. We do not see because we do not wish to see, and those in power do not want you to see the worldwide suffering that they have caused or ignored.
People of the Earth unite. Join us in our quest to find a way to help those in need. Only by uniting can we send a strong message to the leaders of the world. Let us shout with a single voice, "Enough is enough." Together we can end the suffering in the world. Alone we are just another voice in the night.
