Break Bread with a Stranger

dsc00318Will you break bread with somebody different than you?

Eating is a major part of life.  This is not about the food itself.  It does not matter if it is a simple meal from a fast food place or dining in fine restaurants.  It does not matter if one has made sandwiches or had a massive cookout.  The question is Continue reading
