I received some negative comments on my last post. I don't mind if others have different opinions than I do, but I do mind if they share them in a way that is hurtful.
I got all my info from here- http://www.compassion.com/about/where/ethiopia.htm I apologize for some incorrect information I gave. I said that 86% of Ethiopians have HIV/AIDS. I did the math from the numbers I had (population and number of people with HIV/AIDS), but I did it incorrectly. It is actually about one percent. Oops, I am not so good at math! ;) Sorry for the misleading information.
I realize that not all Ethiopians are poor, but I also know that there is poverty there. I did not mean to put down or say anything negative about Ethiopians. I only wanted to say how happy I was that I get to write to Abdisa.
As I said before, I love to learn about Ethiopia. If you can share what you know about that country in a pleasant and courteous way, I would love to hear what you have to say. Any hurtful or nasty comments will be removed.
