When I was Hungry…

 
We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as a primary means of control of the virus… We may well have a doubling of world poverty by early next year. This is a terrible global catastrophe, actually. And so we really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdowns as your primary control method. —Dr. David Nabarro, WHO special envoy, The Week in 60 Minutes; October 10th, 202
 
…we were already calculating 135 million people around the world, before COVID, marching to the brink of starvation. And now, with the new analysis with COVID, we’re looking at 260 million people, and I’m not talking about hungry. I’m talking about marching toward starvation… we literally could see 300,000 people die per day over a 90-day period. —Dr. David Beasley, Executive Director of The United Nations World Food Program, April 22nd, 2020; PBS

 

 

…For I was hungry and you gave me no food… 

         …because all you could hear was “COVID”, 

          and not my hunger cries…

I was thirsty and you gave me no drink… 

      …because you were obsessed 

          with vaccines, not clean water…

A stranger and you gave me no welcome… 

    …because you masked my face 

          and stopped eye contact with me…

Naked and you gave me no clothing… 

        …because you destroyed the supply chain 

          and spoke only of my health, not my wellbeing…

Ill and in prison… 

        in nursing and senior homes 

          where you left me to die alone…

And you did not care for me… 

        …because you were so consumed with your fears,

that you failed to consider my happiness.

Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’ He will answer them,  ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’ (Matt 25:41-44)
