In the civilized world food resources are most plentiful. However, more and more people are seen starving there too. Only a few of them exit this world because of a real lack of physical nourishment. Spiritual poverty is rife and causing extremely serious problems: It kills. Invisible bullets, machetes, arrows and sticks, like epidemics, attack people in the form of words and deeds. Injuring so much more deeply when the perpetrators are denying family who try to control their beloved kids with iron fists in silk gloves. Taking away the individual's autonomy and self-determination and thus, in the end, their lives.
A former schoolfriend recently died from anorexia nervosa. She simply starved to death in her parental home surrounded by wealth and material security. Her mind having been imprisoned in its own concentration camp for many years, finally, was too debilitated to open the unlocked door into freedom....
She could not win her deathly fight to control the little she felt able to control of her life - her body. Leaving her surroundings to cope with the tragedy witnessed- needing to heal.
