Anderson tweeted today about his visit to a hospital in Mogadishu ~
On Monday's AC360 Anderson visited a hospital at the refugee camp in Dadaab; and today Mogadishu. Back in 2005, he was once again in Africa, reporting on famine, from Niger.
On TV I suppose it all looks the same. Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Niger. Another year, nameless children, endless loss in Africa. Of course, all deaths are not the same. Each child looks at you differently, with a different kind of fear, a different kind of pain. I've seen more than my share of children dying and parents weeping, and I still can't imagine what it's like. Lying on a plastic mat, no sheets, no privacy, medicine only for the lucky. I suppose some people get used to seeing it, to covering it. I hope I never do. ~ Anderson Cooper, Details, October 2005
