With the COVID-19 thing happening all over the wold, and the United States doing everything it can to break the cycle of infection, lots of school districts are closed. This is a prudent course to stem the cycle of this disease.
But, there are cries everywhere that kids aren't being fed, because they are dependent on school lunches for basic nutrition. And, school districts are standing up to provide those lunches in many innovative ways.
Let me preface this by saying that this is not the children's fault. We should feed kids, whenever we have the opportunity. But, I hold in utter contempt a parent who is unwilling to make whatever sacrifice is necessary to feed their own children. Utter Contempt.
In this day and age of government assistance, we have SNAP, local food banks, and all manner of help for folks who are in a situational emergency. But, parents should still feed their kids. This is very basic. It is the parent's responsibility to feed their children. A parent can still raise a garden, or keep backyard chickens, or even raise beef. It takes forethought and planning, and may require that you get out of your comfort zone and make hard choices, but the simple fact is that a parent is responsible for feeding their children, and I hold in utter contempt any parent who refuses to take that responsibility.
If a parent has air-conditioning, a television, and a cell phone, they ain't poor. Those three are luxuries. So, if you are living in luxury, feed your kids.
