An Act of Justice

“It is a world of great promise and hope. It is also a world of despair, disease and hunger. Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice.” —From Mandela’s “Africa standing tall against poverty” speech delivered at the Live 8 benefit concert, July 2, 2005.
