Starvation claims far more victims
The terrorist attack that killed 31 and wounded hundreds in Belgium was a cowardly act of barbarism committed by psychopaths.
The world is rightly outraged by this slaughter of innocent people. However, an estimated 21,000 individuals die of starvation every day, and there’s not a single vigil for all of those daily deaths and no one seems to care.
It seems that countless people are starving each day is not as newsworthy as those dying from a terrorist attack.
