Breathtaking piece about rural food insecurity

This piece should be read in full; children whose mother cannot feed them, who cannot concentrate in school because of hunger, whose brains turn to mush over the summer from utter lack of stimulation while rich school children elsewhere benefit from summer enrichment opportunities.  Their mother works a full time job.

The United States is not a country where anyone can be successful.  It is a country where its most vulnerable citizens are allowed to starve, and are then demonized by politicians for their suffering.
