April 8th: Janis

The Last 1/2 Hour Is the Worst

I fasted today as is the custom at FFF to do each Wednesday. I normally fast from sun up to sun down and I think I have the secret…Wake up, eat no breakfast and you will be well on your way to NOT feeling hunger pangs during your day of fasting. But as you get down to the end of the day, you will notice that you want to eat a bear, hunger pangs or no. When I start to think about it though, maybe the hunger pangs are the point. Maybe feeling the urgent need for food is like the urgency we need to feel to keep struggling on with our families, cases, and fight. So maybe next time I will let myself feel the pangs as a reminder of the urgent need that we are aiming to meet with this fast, struggle and movement.
