Here's Something We Really Need To Be Worried About

OK, people, Catholic issue here -- a real pro-life challenge if there ever were one.... Time to get on the ball
UN charity Unicef says 18 million children in sub-Saharan Africa could be orphaned by Aids by the end of 2010.

The warning comes as the children's charity launches a global campaign to help the disease's youngest victims.

Unite For Children, Unite Against Aids, will focus on Africa but also target central Asia and eastern Europe.

Unicef says millions who lose their parents to Aids get no financial support and less than five percent of HIV-positive children get medical help.
The stats are almost numbing. But, if anything, that just adds to how imperative the challenge is.
