'35.5 million Americans found hungry in 2006' - US Census Bureau

The U.S. Census Bureau reported yesterday that 35.5 million people in the U.S. went hungry in 2006. The majority indicated that they could not find jobs that generate sufficient income to support them. So in the richest nation the world has ever seen, basic human needs are not met.

The data from the Census Bureau does not include the homeless who number about three-quarters of a million people on any given day in 2005, according to federal estimates.

Among the findings:

* Among families, about 12.6 million, or 10.9 per cent, reported going hungry for at least some period last year. Those disproportionately reporting hunger were single mothers (30.4 percent); black households (21.8 per cent); Hispanic households (19.5 per cent); and households with incomes below the official poverty line (36.3 per cent).
* States with families reporting higher prevalence of hunger from 2004-2006 included: Mississippi (18.1 per cent); New Mexico (16.1 per cent); Texas (15.9 per cent); and South Carolina (14.7 per cent).
* Of the 35.5 million people reporting periods of hunger last year, 12.6 million were children.

As an American citizen, I can attest to the fact that the fault of the hungry citizen's doesn't fall in the lap of government, but with the individual citizen's who fail to keep God first in their lives. If God be for us, who can be against us?

I have been in the exact same position (as an experiment) and when I applied the principles of God's Word (the Bible) I got the desired results. It may sound trite and too simple, but it is simple, people make it hard! It is a matter of believing God? Is ANYTHING too hard for God? Give me one example and I'll show you a million examples of the exact precision of the principle of giving and receiving!
