We can learn a great deal from the date Aug. 12.
Many will associate Aug. 6 with the deaths of 125,000 civilians at Hiroshima. Very few will associate Aug. 12 with the ongoing deaths of 500,000 children.
Ten years ago on Aug. 12, UNICEF reported on preventable deaths in one country from 1991 - 98 found half a million children had died.
But this UNICEF survey of the deaths of 500,000 infants, toddlers and preschoolers was not mentioned at all on the nightly news.
