Rwanda, all over again...

How many millions of people must die before we care enough to do something significant?
Why do we always chase money and power, as opposed to standing up for who people aren't able to defend themselves?

"The last decade of conflict has resulted in some 4 million deaths; an estimated 1,200 people die every day due to ongoing epidemics and war-related causes; some aid agencies estimate upward of 1,400 deaths per day," the Christian relief organization said in a news release.

Absolutely right
When will we value these people ? I'm hoping that Obama will consider what can be done, and do it!

U.N.: Gunmen kill woman while trying to rape girl
Don't just donate money to charities, as they eat up on maintenance and administrative costs, instead donate a gun to the women who are vulnerable, let me know if there are such agencies. If we need guns as right for Americans why not for the woman of Congo? This is the only solution.
