We need to find you something to keep you busy in the next meetings to save
you from this food related concerns.

For goodness sake, Its our custom in Africa to welcome vistors into our
homes and functions to feast together with us and share food as a
celebration of kinship.

The invention of fire brought humans together but its food that brought us
even more closer together as people.

Its rather bazar that of all things, folks we would consider as seniors
with full of wisdom from years of experience are wining about people eating

I bet to some people even drinking-water would cost someone dying with a
thirst some dime.

Money will indeed continue to corrupt us as a people and we will loose our
human values.

No one in Dakar starved even though a few curious visitors from the public
who hard of the meeting came around.
