Hunger doesn't take a day off and neither do cattle ranchers

We've had some crazy weather in Kansas over the last week. Both K-State and Washburn Law were closed for two days last week due to snow and ice. Even the legislature shut down for a couple days. However, cattle ranchers didn't get any time off. They were outside working hard to take care of the livestock, especially those who had cows calving.

So next time you're inside snuggled up by the fire with a bowl of soup and it's snowing outside, think about the sacrifices America's farmers and ranchers made to make that soup possible. Also think about those who are hungry and even homeless and how much harder the weather is on them.

Just some food for thought,
