Tomorrow is World Food Day. I'm translating a POHDH press release on Haiti's food crisis that calls the Haitian government to reexamine its adherence to neoliberal trade policies, and I am contemplating the billions of people worldwide that will go to bed hungry tonight. It's easy to wonder if, sitting at my computer with French-English dictionary on hand, I am really doing what is required of me. Here is my challenge:
"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me... I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
