When I have food,

help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work,

help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home,

help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain,

help me to remember those who suffer,

And in remembering,

help me to destroy my complacency;
bestir my compassion,
and be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed,

those who cry out for what we take for granted.        Amen.

-Samuel F. Pugh
