Numbers…

The mission of Fun Fact Friday is to entertain but also to curate and impart knowledge to those with a desire to learn.  I believe it is through knowledge that we gain understanding and context for the world around us, enabling us to make informed and sensible decisions.

Yet no matter how much we know, there are things that happen in this world, that for the majority of us, will never make sense.

Today’s fact is neither fun, fascinating, or amusing.  It is simply a fact.  No matter your stance on the issues around this topic-we should agree that the figures are alarming.

These are the statistics; these are the numbers…
