The Great Irish Famine was a watershed in the history of Ireland. 150 years ago more than a million Irish died and many more suffered and the world did not respond. How will history treat our response? We can best honor our Irish heritage by not just remembering, but by acting today. Just like on St. Patrick's Day anyone can be "Irish" so friend us on facebook to help spread the word and donate today to EdesiaGlobal.org, a RI nonprofit producing and shipping famine food to the Horn of Africa.
