"There is a boy somewhere hungry"

While I was passing by this table, I saw this person was staring at her food on the table while her right hand was trying to move the first scoop of food into her mouth. I stopped and asked her, "What are you eating today?" She replied, "the food is too much for me" and "there is a boy hungry somewhere at this moment. " She feels very bad eating the delicious food, meanwhile knowing someone is hungry somewhere. She is 98 years old but still very sensitive of others' needs. What a blessing to know someone at this age, she is still very concern of poverty existing around the world. It can be very interesting to delve in-depth with this person lived experiences.
