A forgotten crisis

We read about the Somali pirates who kidnap our seamen, but what about their people?
There but for the grace of God, go I. Should we blame the Somalis for what has become of their country? Was there anything they could have done to change their lives? But if the answer is none, then how do we know that we will not one day find ourselves in their shoes? Read and weep, at least for the babies who die without ever having known the fullness of life, this article on the New York Times.
