Excerpt from Inspire More
Written by Josh Startling
Since the beginning of the school year, Josette Duran has been packing her son two lunches. When her son first made the strange request the reason wasn’t quite clear, but after some prodding Duran’s heart broke in two. It wasn’t that one lunch wasn’t enough for him; it was because he was giving the extra lunch to another boy.
“He said, ‘No mom, it’s for this little boy at school and he sits by himself and all he eats is a fruit cup,” Duran Said. The unnamed little boy’s mother recently lost her job and couldn’t afford school lunches. Duran was all too familiar with the mother’s situation.
