You can't flip through this book and not be motivated to do something, anything, to bring a little peace into the world. The book is also a shocking reality check that we "must not rest in the comfort of our freedom." Great photographs and content. A must read.

This book combines photography with the stark realism of poverty. What we don't know can hurt us. Every time I go to the supermarket I now think of how readily available and diverse our food is and I will never complain about a slow checkout line again.
What an awesome book! Beautiful photographs and commentary. I'm so grateful for my blessings.
