Watch Viola Davis’ Emotional Speech About Childhood Poverty

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 15.8 million children under 18 in the United States live in households where they are unable to consistently access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life. That is approximately 5% of the total population.

Why post about one actress and her speech on childhood poverty. Seems that in a country as amazing and as wealthy as our own, we should be able to take care of our own.
