The Malaria Tsunami

"The eradication of malaria is not a near-term goal," Gates said, but one that can "certainly" be achieved within his lifetime.

Bill Gates isn't young.  We have a lot of work to do.

Being in this meeting and preparing for the work ahead of me is like watching a tsunami slowly rise up in the distance.  I can kind of prepare.  Put on my swimmies and learn how to hold my breath for a long time, but basically I'm just bracing myself.

The good news is that this work excites me.  I find it invigorating.  Plus, my hair looks prettier the less I sleep and shower.

Malaria kills over 3000 children a day.  I think I can stand a little swim.
