Struggling to mask his tears, Tony Hall followed a doctor through a mass of dying Ethiopians crying out for food and medicine—help that could not possibly arrive soon enough or in sufficient quantities to keep them alive.

This was a great book. It was written by a Senator from Ohio that helped to change world hunger to help others all over the world. The people from his state felt like he was doing more for the world than their state so he did not run for re-election. It gave a lot of insight into politics and our responsibilities for Humanitarian help and world hunger. Suggested by Weber County Library in June.

My favorite book in a long time. His stories prove that being "for" things and finding commonality propels people to action and change. Tony Hall bridges political, social, racial and cultural barriers for the common purpose of serving/feeding the poor. so inspiring!
