Ethiopia

November 10, 1987

The picture on the front page showed two hungry Ethiopians, who represent the several millions of Ethiopians who are on the edge of starvation, and may be pushed over the edge in the next several months.

Most Americans, in the next several months, will be too busy preparing for wonderful Thanksgiving meals and Christmas holidays to lobby their congressional representatives to help the world's hungry.

The crisis in Ethiopia demands immediate attention, and our leaders must realize that some problems require action, even though they are not being pushed by their constituents. Leaders must lead--followers must often be pushed.
