"I am all the days you choose to ignore"

1.5 million

200,000

650,000

"11 Rescue those who are being taken away to death;
hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.
12 If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it,
and will he not repay man according to his work? "
-Proverbs 24:11-12

haha. What I was trying to get at was the links listed above are estimated numbers of the people in specific countries who are either dead all ready or displaced and most likely malnourished and standing at deaths door. Many of these numbers are the result of injustice...injustice that continues to be ignored which tends to produce massive loss of life. The passage I used ...I thought emphasized the idea helping those caught in a situation that pushing them quickly towards death. If I used the passage out of context please let me know. I realize this could be a possibility
