Did You Know.....

One of my favorite shows of all-time, SportsCenter, used to give its faithful watchers a daily dose of "Did You Know". This information would likely be obscure facts about something in the sports world that even the most educated sports buff would not know. Well, now I am taking up the pastime forgotten by ESPN, except mine will not be daily, it will be weekly, and I will not fill your heads with useless sports trivia but, instead, social issues.

"Did You Know"....According to UNICEF, 30,000 children die each day due to poverty. "And they die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death."
That is about 210,000 children each week, or just under 11 million children under five years of age, each year.

Time for action Christendom.

Grant, thanks for your new blog. I hope all is well as you prep for A-stan. Katie, Sue, and I missed you at the PFC. There were very vew singles and no one wanted to play games late into the night, so it wasn't quite like the COP, but it was still a blast.

Also, your blog, along with others inspired me, so here's my site:
