Author and food justice activist Andy Fisher gave a fascinating lecture at UH last night on hunger in America.

In Hawaii, with our high cost of living and dependency on imported goods, food insecurity is a real issue in our state, with over 160,000 of us struggling with hunger.

Fisher’s lecture spoke to how fighting hunger isn’t just about making sure people have access to food. It’s about addressing the deep seeded institutional ills that create and perpetuate poverty.

As Americans, we remember the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.

We remember the horror of being attacked at home.

We remember the anger of an unprovoked act of terrible violence.

We remember the crushing sadness of the loss of thousands of lives.

We also remember the bravery of the first responders who risked their own lives to save the lives of others.

We remember the outpouring of compassion and generosity from all corners of this country and the world over to help the victims and their loved ones.

We remember coming together as a nation in grief and in resilience to take care of each other and protect the values that fell under attack that Tuesday morning.

18 years later, it is more important than ever for us to remember.

Our country is divided.

Partisan is the new normal and sometimes we seem so far apart, it doesn’t feel like we’ll ever come back together again.

But if there is one lesson we can learn from the tragedy of 9/11 and those uncertain days and weeks that followed, let it be the strength of our unity.

The best way I can think of to honor the memories of those lost on 9/11, of those who sacrificed themselves for others, of those who enlisted to protect all of us, is to come together again and work towards understanding, compassion, and peace, as one nation, united.

There is a collective effort by our local docs to address the serious problems of mental illness as well as drug use - meth and heroine, which cause severe damage to the human brain.

I will continue to do all I can to support solutions like ACT Treatment, drug treatment and housing for those who desperately need it.

A sincere mahalo to the Hawaii Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians for inviting me to share my vision to make our system of healthcare work better for you and the patients you care for.
