Same story here in inner city Dallas, Texas

Here's a CNN news report that I picked up yesterday.

Please watch to understand something of the growing pain, need and stress facing additional millions of our neighbors as a result of the severe downturn in our economy.

The story you'll see from CNN is the same story we are seeing here in Dallas every day.

Yesterday, as I drove up to our headquarters building, the line was already down the sidewalk before 8:00 a.m. As I drove up Peak Street to a meeting out north, I passed a church in the neighborhood where another line had formed.

Or, consider this report about a community farm open to harvesters in need of food.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, let's remember that hunger and poverty never enjoy a holiday.
