hungry?

i have to go to the grocery today. i hate to go to the grocery. i only go for soy milk and orange juice. i do the rest of my shopping at the thursday farmer's market.
i fell asleep last night watching a UN interview on Niger. i know it will seriously depress me to go to the grocery while 3.5 million people are starving to death there. the food americans toss out every day would be enough to save the lives of these children. you would think Niger was a planet away judging by the world's response to their pleas for help.

i don't understand why people can wonderfully come together and raise millions for the tsunami, but when crisis strikes in africa most people do not even know of it. what is so different from a tsunami and famine from draught and locusts?
