I was devastated after reading about the famine in Somalia. It made me realize how ignorant and oblivious I am to what goes on in the world. As a society, we cover more stories on garbage celebrity BS that has absolutely no relevant effects on our day to day living.  Supposedly, this is the “worst” famine/drought within the past 60 years. I am not much of a politician or historian, so I can’t ramble off about preventative measures or reasoning behind this. All I know is that it makes me grateful for just the simplest, basic necessities of life that is not written in the fate of hundreds of thousands innocent people. I went crazy with guilt thinking of how superficial, gluttonous, and entitled I can be without even realizing what I spend my money on. What makes them different from me is simply a matter of random chance: where we happened to be born on this globe. Starvation and malnutrition is a torturous and horrendous death. When we hear/read about it thousands of miles away, our brains just cannot process or fathom the severe devastation of this matter.  I have added a couple links below for people interested in donating. I can’t stress enough the importance of educating ourselves of what goes on in the world around us. Let us not become desensitized to the core values and delicate existence of humanity.
