Remember Your Fifth?

Your fifth birthday, that is. I'll be attending a friend's third birthday party soon. Have you recently been to a child's birthday party? How many children attended?

Well next time you go to a child's birthday party, or see a bunch of them playing in the neighborhood playground, take a closer look.

Then close your eyes and imagine that life was so rough, that out of eight children, one will have died by disease or by violence.

That's apparently what WE did to Iraq.
"One in eight Iraqi children died of disease or violence before reaching their fifth birthday in 2005, according to the report by Save the Children."

Oh yeah, we're exporting democracy. Apparently, that's not all we're exporting. ONE IN EIGHT under 5 years old. How would YOU react if someone came to your neighborhood and reduced it to that statistic?
