Death in Africa

In Africa, 3 million babies are stillborn each year and four million die within a month of birth. If you are lucky enough to survive malaria or TB, your chances of starving to death are pretty good. The USA is spending 10 billion dollars a month on the 'war' in Iraq. An additional 4.1 billion dollars a year could result in saving millions of children in Africa. I have no idea how we get up each morning and live with ourselves knowing the devastation that is occuring in Africa and elsewhere in the world.

We're "liberating" Iraq.

Rationalization is a powerful form of self-delusion.
