This should be a season of goodwill.  Joy to the world, peace to men on earth, but the season is anything but joyful or peaceful.  While the people of Newton Connecticut are still trying to come to terms with the shooting deaths of twenty children and seven adults, in other parts of the world the senseless killings continues.

In Pakistan six health workers on a polio eradication campaign were shot dead.  Polio is an infectious disease which can cause permanent paralysis in a matter of hours.  There is the need for safe and effective vaccines to protect children from the disease which according to the WHO, is currently endemic in Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan.

Four female health workers were reportedly shot dead in Karachi on Tuesday.  Two were killed after administering vaccination to children.  Two other women were shot while going from house to house giving vaccination in Peshawar.  Police official Javed Khan said the gunmen opened fire on the women as they left a house where they had vaccinated children.
