Hi all!  Shea here.  *Waving.*  This week’s post is a continuation of our Profiles in Radical Hospitality written by Alice Ragland, an OU student and another regular volunteer at UCM’s Free Meal’s program.

The world is a circle
Continuous and connective;
The whole thing will malfunction
If one part is ineffective.
Nobody can eat
If somebody is famished;
No justice can exist
If in one place it has vanished.
No one can be warm
If somebody is cold;
Nothing can glitter
If ALL of it is not gold.
If one school is in shambles,
Another cannot be effective;
If the top is corrupt,
The whole structure is defective.
No river can be clean
If one is polluted;
These problems must be solved,
They cannot be diluted.
The world is not a series of disconnected points
But a continuous place, where each of its joints
Connects with another, no matter how far apart.
What appears at the end re-appears at the start.
For the world is a circle,
 Continuous and connective.
The whole thing will malfunction
If one part is ineffective.
–Alice Ragland
