Today I stand before you to explain why we, as fellow Americans, need to extend help in the growing effort to fight the war against hunger in America.
As the districts face extreme poverty they participate in the games, which are a source of mere entertainment for the people of the Capitol. The more number of times a name is entered in the draw, the greater the share of food and stock the respective individual gets. Poverty stricken, the children from ages 12 to 18 put their names forty to fifty times to save their families from starvation. It is to be noticed, however, that this practice increased the probability of selection for the Games, thus making the whole procedure risky as well as histrionic. The three books- The Hunger Games (2008), Catching Fire (2009) and Mockingjay (2010) make up the trilogy.
Poverty raises crime and makes life harder for children.

Hunger was one of the greatest problems; families would fight each other for food rations tearing everybody apart. For prisoners during the Holocaust, meal times were the most important times of the day. In the morning they would usually get a ‘meal’, which consisted of coffee or tea. For lunch they would have gotten watery soup, if they even got the opportunity to eat anything during lunchtime. That depended on if they worked or were busy and if their sergeant would let them eat.
Paarlberg shows Pathos, Ethos and Logos through the thought of unravelling worldwide starvation by being realistic of the view on pre-industrial food and farming. Pathos is clearly evident in Paarlberg’s article through the presentation of the food insecurity problem in Africa and Asia. He uses impassioned words as an attempt to reach out to his target audience on a more emotional level by agitating and drawing sympathy of whole food shoppers and policy makers. Paarlberg employs Pathos during the article when he says, “The majority of truly undernourished people -- 62 percent, according to the U.N.

This position gave him the opportunity to fight hunger on a national, then international level. Hunger is a solvable, but seemingly impossible world problem. 2,500 people die of it every day, yet it does not receive the attention required to improve upon it. When Tony Hall found the topic, he realized just how important it was and made it his main focus. Hunger is usually a result of a greater economic or social problem, like the civil war in Ethiopia or the dictatorship in North Korea.
Famine worked with Death to deprive Mankind of their main source of strength; food and fuel. He has rotted grain and destroyed crop. All affected by him were beaten by starvation and eventually came to Death. However, Mankind fought Famine off. They improved irrigation methods and grew a surplus of food.
Our world is greatly dimmed by those of larger body. When roaming the streets, we see every day those struggling to hold themselves up. Being fit and active, when viewing those who aren’t of our stature, it brings shame and depression. The problem of obesity has plagued this great nation since it’s founding. From the founding fathers to the common citizen.
