What did you have for breakfast?

Nepbabu's this post got me speechless for a while. Jus couldn't believe my eyes. EXTREME poverty is forcing Haiti's poorest people to eat mud-cookies (made from dirt, salt and vegetable shortening). Can't even call them cookies. They're not cooked, they're jus sun dried!

Some googling got me to this.

For the price of one missile, a school full of hungry children could eat lunch every day for 5 years.
Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of hunger.

I jus showed the mud-cookie photos to my lil' bro. He asked, does that taste good? I dont care what it tastes like, but it definitely tastes frustration, anger.. (i'm short of words)

    I sure can imagine how it feels like to eat sun-dried mud-cookies! Nevertheless, Australians are being encouraged to donate to help them out. sigh
