34 000 Children Die Every Day

It is difficult to comprehend, but we live in a world where 34 000 children under the age of five die every day due to hunger and preventable diseases. That's 500 busloads of children, simply dumped the same way large companies dump tonnes of perfectly good food to keep prices up.

The terrible thing is that we are so desensitised that news stories such as Britney Spears' haircut or Paris Hilton's new $5000 dress get more attention.

Words cannot express this tragedy. I was wondering if there is anything I or people in general can do to prevent his. Please let me know.

Children are the flowers of tommorrow.. All of us, have a responsibility to protection our children. More particularly, the state has sole responsibility of protection children.

words will never get to express them self and what people have been through. Theese por kids they have been through alot and stuff that they probly never weanted to do or see. So when we think that life is hard we might want to think of the kids who died and be thankful that we are alive here and that we arnt them. and lets prey that next time that kids die they will belong to god. Hopefuly that god will help them through stuff that is umberible. So gear god we prey that you will help us and the kids that are in siknesses to make them beter and i prey that you will help them in JESUS NAME WE PREY AMEN
