More Suffering in Somalia

Somalians are suffering more than ever from severe drought, rising food prices, rising inflation and violence. Babies are dying and mothers are crying. I know we have our own problems in our communities, but at least we have access to food and a liveable climate. Most times we are oblivious to the impact of our growing demands for more stuff, more fuel, more food on others in the world, especially those on the continent of our ancestors. Reading this article will really make you wonder how much of our actions are impacting our peers across the diaspora. I read the article and wondered what I could do to help. There are no easy solutions, but you can control what you can control and that is to live a life that is more conscious of our cousins around the world.

What are your thoughts?
