I am not a moviegoer, however, this weekend while surfing the Web, I came across a documentary "A Place at the Table."
The documentary, which features actor Jeff Bridges, examines the issue of hunger in America through the eyes of three families in Philadelphia, Colorado and Mississippi.
My mother, Dorothy, 84, offered her comments after watching the movie.
"It's [hunger] bad here at home," she said. "You do not have to worry about going to another country to see it."
She is right.
