How do you make sense of a world in which famine is allowed to persist? Why are people in east Africa starving while Americans still throw away 14% of their food? Why do we ignore those institutions that warn us about these tragedies until it is too late for so many? With so little being done to resolve the famine in Somalia, what hope is there for the Turkana? Will many have to die before the world takes notice?
