"Nobody loves America more than I do, you know. That's why we left, because I couldn't bare to watch. You kids have got to understand this. Like when my mother died, she'd been strong as an ox, fell down, broke her hip, went into the hospital and caught double pneumonia. She's laying in bed dying and I went over and held her hand. She looked up to me and you know what she said? "Why don't you give me some rat poison?" Couldn't listen, couldn't watch, so I went away. People said that I was at the height of callousness, it's not true. I loved her too much to watch her die." -- Allie, The Mosquito Coast

Caroline Dove and Becky Ward, from Cambridgeshire, have been cooking and delivering hundreds of hot meals for people in need. They used to supply up to 40 meals twice a week when they started 18 months ago, but now it is about 90. “One of my elderly ladies was actually buying dog food because it was cheaper than human food,” said Ms Ward. “She said she’s gone through the war and the rations and all that sort of stuff and so dog food didn’t taste any different to her.”
