I must articulate that at this moment of writing this article, there is a surge of compassion overload, as the tears stream form my tear ducts.

All of us take for granted the fact that we can get into our cars (yes, there are few who will walk or get on a bicycle) and head for the fast food outlet, grocery store to stock our shelves.

Clearly, the modern food economy that the system entrusted to meet our most basic needs is failing daily.
