And We Thought 9/11 Was Bad

If we knew that 2 million children die needlessly every year would we be interesting in doing something about it? Probably not. We have terrorists to worry about.
Nearly two million children a year die for want of clean water and proper sanitation while the world's poor often pay more for their water than people in Britain or the US, according to a major new report.

That's more than 5,000 children per day dying unnecessarily. Where have our priorities gone?
