The article presents the author's experience of saying grace at meals. A nun stopped her as she was about to eat. The nun thanked God for the food they are about to eat. She was about to lift her head when the nun continued to pray for the farmers who planted the seeds, the workers who harvested the fields, the truckers who transported the food, the cook who prepared it and the waitress who served it. She later realized that a chain of people had made her meal possible.
