The fast ends with me feeling good, having had a powerful personal experience. Had my first wine, solid food and diet coke in a week last night, ate moderately, and am still thinking about what I have learned about hunger, about focused thinking, about empathy toward others, about what creatures of habit we all are.
I end the fast eager to hear how my DC colleagues are doing, determined that we should do more to stop these budget cuts, and appreciative of all the expressions of concern and support I received from staff, family and friends.
Let us work together to address the worst evils in the world. Let us do our part here to prevent more children and adults from going hungry.
