Well said, Helena! Most children are helpless with regards to how food is or isn't provided for them within their families. We should all step up to help make sure that children are provided with basic necessities. If you were always hungry, and didn't know where your next meal was coming…

Congratulations to the Urbana tennis team on their victory, but shame on the FNP for its error in this headline. Enjoying its "just deserts"?! I am fairly certain that someone meant to write "desserts," but simply did not bother to proofread before hitting submit.
