I decided to do the live below the line challenge again this year! I used it as an optional assignment to my students of non-traditional security. Despite the chance at 3 extra credit points, only 1 student tried! It wasn't very hard. My friend Terry came to visit and brought my some pastries, so that helped, but I had leftover oats, pasta, and sour cream so it evened out anyway. It's nice to take time to think about the billions of people who can't afford the basics of life and to think about what we can do to improve their situation.
