Today’s Horoscope: Capricorn
”Things could be worse
Don’t take everything so seriously!”


Up-to-the-Minute News, World/US Census Report:

171,420 rapes reported to authorities each year:

=

469 raped each day
19 each hour
1 every 3.5 minutes.

Only 16% of all rapes reported to authorities:

=

12 million in a 20 year period.
12 million = 20% of the U.S population.

29% of all rapes occur under 11 years old.
32% of all rapes occur between 11 & 17 years old.

12 million,
61% under the age of 17

171,420:
11 times the amount of people killed in the Vietnam War.
34 times the amount of people killed by AIDS each year.

& yet,
each has a face,
a name,
a family,
a favourite book,
a certain way of smiling.

Every 3.5 minutes

But then again;
Things could be worse.
