Since 1998 38,000 people have been killed per month in the Democratic Republic of the Congo Bringing the current total of dead to around: 4,000,000 (If you closed your eyes and touched their beautiful warm faces you might just have a little pity for these displaced children with an uncertain future.) This is the highest number of people killed in a war since WWII. I know most us will never set foot in the Congo but since everything's connected the reverberations will. The war has largely went uncovered by the media and you can draw your own conclusions as to why this is, just try to remember that murder is like a contagious disease, that when left untreated affects the overall health of the body. If we turn our backs on these precious children we turn our backs on our own. Anyway... "The great crimes of the twentieth century were committed not by money-grubbing capitalists but by dedicated idealists. Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler were contemptuous of money. The passage from the nineteenth to the twentieth century has been a passage from considerations of money to considerations of power. How naive the cliche that money is the root of evil!" ~Eric Hoffer~ Stay green!
