Quote of the Day

This is from a Sojourners email:

Rich countries have no excuse for failing to deliver the aid increases they promised five years ago at Gleneagles. The missing $21 billion could pay for every child [in the world] to go to school and could save the lives of two million of the poorest mothers and children.

-- Max Lawson at Oxfam on a study showing that aid to developing countries from richer nations will fail to hit targets set five years ago at the Gleneagles summit.

I did not know this. It's very troubling, actually.
