Now, I just want to say that while the (Western) world is debating about Iraq and focusing on things they are affected by, these 24 hours, 24,000 people in the world will die of starvation. And not only these 24 hours? No, the following 24 hours too. And the 24 hours after that. In one week, when you go to work, go home, eat your supper, have a good time, have the weekend off, remember that in that same week that can seem so normal to you, approximately 168,000 people have died of starvation. I don't say you have to act, rush to the airport or go on a hunger strike to experience what these people went through, but I ask you just to think about it for a couple of seconds. Thanks.
