Sad website, but important to view.

This website shows how many kids die every day based on easily solved poverty issues like hunger and diseases. Then they make it devastating by showing the actual pictures of some of the kids who died today--today! You are forced to look into their faces, knowing that such sweet kids are dead and could have been saved. sad.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

On the site it says that the faces and pictures are representational, not the actual people who died... but still... I noticed a lot more girls than boys being represented. I wonder if that's because of the fact that so many more little girls are starved (if not killed otherwise) in countries where boys are more valued.

I know it's not aurora borealis... that makes the sky this way.
