But technology, innovation and even resources are not enough. Defeating hunger and malnutrition requires political resolve. It requires leaders who will stand up and say, 'Not on my watch.'
-- Josette Sheeran (above right), Executive Director of the World Food Programme, a U.N. entity. The quote is from Sheeran's CNN.com op-ed based entitled "You have the power to end hunger" -- an op-ed based on a "TED talk" that Sheeran gave in Scotland. The message is particularly timely given current, tragic news about famine in Somalia.
