This is the harsh truth for so many children around the world.  I was given a lucky chance to grow up in the U.S., but many children, like five-year-old Marjan, grow up fast under the burdens of their reality.  Marjan will hopefully be one of the five children that will survive, a very honest and sad statistic about child mortality rates in Afghanistan.  According to UNICEF, Marjan is growing up in the worst country for a child, second only to Sierra Leone in child mortality.

This is the type of story I want to cover one day as a journalist.  These types of stories need to be heard.
