A commencement challenge by Bono:
The fact is that this generationóyours, my generationóthat can look at the poverty, weíre the first generation that can look at poverty and disease, look across the ocean to Africa and say with a straight face, we can be the first to end this sort of stupid extreme poverty, where in the world of plenty a child can die for lack of food in itís belly. We can be the first generation. It might take a while, but we can be that generation that says no to stupid poverty… So why arenít we pumping our fists in the air and cheering about it? Well probably because when we admit we can do something about it, weíve got to do something about it. For the first time in history we have the know how, we have the cash, we have the lifesaving drugs, but do we have the will?
