Why an empty bowl you ask?   For us it symbolises how so many are forced to go without as a result of the greed that traps people into falling prey to corruption.   So many suffer for the misdeeds of others.   Why is this?   It is precisely this attitude of:   "It does not effect me so why should I get involved!"   It effects everyone!
