Dear Assta B. Gettu:

What exactly do you mean when you said, “almost everything"?

I am afraid, it is not only hunger that we are done with. As a people and country, we have tens of things to wage a war against and win the battle.

Please do not simplify the deep trouble we are in. That certainly does not help anyone.

you should understand Assta’s comment contextually. Now and then you should pat yourself on the back and feel good. His lines were meant just to be that.
