"Sometime in your life, hope that you might see one starved man, and the look on his face when the bread finally arrives. Hope that you might have baked it or bought it or even kneaded it yourself. For that look on his face, for your meeting his eyes across a piece of bread, you might be willing to lose a lot, or suffer a lot, or die a little, even." - Daniel Barrigan, SJ

God of the poor man, this is how the day began
Eight codefendents, I Daniel Berrigan...
Oh, and only a layman's batch of napalm
We pulled the draft files out,
we burned them in the parking lot.
Better the files than the bodies of children.
-Dar Williams, "I Had No Right"
