Live 8 Victory for Geldof, Bono

Published: 2005-07-12
The Live 8 concerts have been proven to make the G8 summit successful. As world leaders met in Gleneagles, Scotland, earlier this month they pledged to double aid to Africa to $50 billion. While this is a great victory in the sense that politicians have listened to their public, and relief was sent where it was needed most, Bono has remained a realist and commented that there are still higher peaks to climb.

People die in Africa every day from the effects of poverty, malaria, and AIDS and the wealthier countries have stepped up to do their part in changing lives. Now it's time to kick it up another notch and keep our attention focused on those around the world and in our own backyard who are less fortunate then ourselves, and understand, as the campaign says, that we are all "ONE".
