'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)

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.
