I’m here for other children.  I’m here because I care.  I’m here because children everywhere are suffering and because 40,000 people die each day from hunger.  I’m here because those people are mostly children.  We have got to understand that the poor are all around us and we are ignoring them.  We have got to understand that these deaths are preventable.  We have got to understand that people in third world countries think, care, smile, and cry just like us.  We have got to understand they are us, we are them.  My dream is to stop hunger by the year 2000.  My dream is to give the poor a chance.  My dream is to save the 40,000 people who die each day.  My dream can and will come true if we all look into the future and see the light that shines there.
