What is good for one is good for all, goes the common saying. There are countries in the world where children wake up in the morning and have a bright day ahead of them. The same cannot be said of 87 countries and territories at risk of malaria transmission (nearly half of the world population, according to www.cdc.gov) where children wake up in the morning and are either held down by malaria or struggling between life and death from other preventable but life-threatening diseases.
If the world must experience the advancement we all truly want, then we must work together to achieve it. Everyone has a place and a role to play, including those poor, vulnerable children and families across the world.
