WWA: Training Edition

Yup. I’m in training this week. It’s interesting, but it’s still training. So today’s word is: drone

(Just kidding, the trainer has a very nice voice, but it’s still what comes to mind when I think of most training.)

Some Numbers for Your Perusal

Here are some numbers:

Number of American children living in poverty (2009) 14,657,000 / 20.7%
Number of children in the US without health insurance (2008) 8,411,000
Number of children in the US who were food insecure (2007) 13,912,000
Infant mortality (2007) 29,138
Child deaths (2007) 10,850
Number of abortions in the US (2005) 1.2 million

Here are some comparisons:
Infant mortality < number of abortions Child mortality < number of abortions Children without health insurance > number of abortions
Children living in poverty > number of abortions
Children without adequate food > number of abortions

I often wonder about political priorities in light of what is really happening.
