'Hope Amid Terror'

It was enlightening to read about a war against something, other than people. The war I'm referring to, is the vaccinations for 200,000 children in El Salvador, against tetanus. According to UNICEF, 40,000 children die each day from malnutrition, and disease's such as tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, measles and polio.

Thanks to your editorial, the thousands who read it are now educated on a subject where positive action is being taken. Your editorial will make a powerful contribution toward the results of this vaccination campaign.
