staggering


I just read about the nazi war criminal who is 95 years old and going on trial and I double checked a statistic in the article. I saw that 1.1 million people were killed at just one camp over 5 years. When I did the math I saw that that was 600 people a day, every day, for 5 years. I am aware of how devastating the holocaust was, I have read about it in depth. It is not new information to me that the events were beyond terrible. But somehow that statistic makes it even more staggering. How and Why? The number of human beings…. I am speechless.

In light of our current political primaries, I hope the majority of the people of our country prove to be what I believe they are, and not what the media is showcasing.
