AIDS NO LONGER A THREAT?

It may not seem as much of a threat to those of us in America - but check this out: there are roughly 761 million people in Africa. If it weren't for AIDS, there would be 11 million more.

In fact, at presently there are about 22.5 million people in Africa with AIDS.

According to the Center for Disease Control, there are only 208,000 people in the US living with AIDS. Once again we see how the countries with the money really don't give a crap about the countries that don't have a lot of money. Or maybe it's just that the people in Africa are mostly black.

Either way, a lot of people are dying and something needs to be done - I have no idea what, but SOMETHING should be done. I feel pretty useless in regards to all this. But what else can I do but point out the problem?
