What does it take to make you cry? A poignant scene in a movie? A friend going through a tough time? A remembrance of a lost love? A tender song from your childhood? A yellowed photo of Mom or Dad, now gone and sorely missed? Tears can be brought to our eyes by all kinds of things. I promise that watching a video of a newborn in the throes of the seizures brought on by maternal/neonatal tetanus will bring tears to the eyes of any caring person. Check YouTube and type in “Eliminate Project” and see for yourself. The babies born to women who have contracted tetanus die within a week of their births, and that death is not a calm, peaceful sleep.
