The severe, raging drought that has hit the Sudan, Ethiopia, and Kenya - has not made the headlines - here in the United States and some other countries because the Main Media is concerned about other issues - rather than, dire - human life.
The area where the current severe drought reigns Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia is the cradle of human kind.
Make no mistake - all of us - have some responsibility and some keen concern - as to what happens - from where all of us originated.
The United States has been very slow in responding to aid. Even though it has exploited the region - foremost Kenya.
The Republicans who do not give a hoot about real issues and more about poor, suffering, women, children and men in the area - I have stated.
The Republicans have been pussyfooting with the "debt ceiling" and have proved themselves to be uncaring to our Seniors and Elders - and by inference do not really care what is happening to the "cradle of human kind" - and those that need help most.
The plea from some of us that know what really is happening - is please help - because of women and children in this area - are slowly starving to death.
My plea is to consider what each one of us that have a better life - to contribute something - anything, right now to Doctors against Borders, and other such reputable organizations to do - right.
