All rights reserved. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant gorgeous talented fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? . . . Your playing small does not serve the world. There& 8217 s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won& 8217 t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. . . . It is not just in some of us it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear our presence automatically liberates & 173 others.& 8211 Marianne Williamson A Return to & 173 Love1. The First Light of EveningFrom 1984 to the autumn of 1985 Bob Geldof the lead singer of Irish rock band the Boomtown Rats raised over sixty million pounds for famine relief in Ethiopia. He did it by organizing Band Aid first cutting a & 173 best-& 173 selling song in collaboration with British rock stars and then organizing a huge Live Aid telethon which lasted seventeen hours and was broadcast from both sides of the Atlantic. Geldof was seized with the determination to help the starving of Ethiopia while watching a BBC documentary on the famine. Hundreds of people were involved in making Live Aid successful but the vision behind the effort was his. Live Aid not only set a standard for international rock concerts but also tapped a new charitable & 173 niche & 8211 youth & 8211 and challenged the aid delivery system set up by governments and & 173 non-& 173 governmental organizations NGOs . Geldof worked out a strategy that allowed him to use the expertise and distribution systems of existing aid organizations while he cut through much of the red tape that traditionally slowed aid & 173 delivery.While Live Aid did not solve the problem of famine in Africa Geldof was widely praised for his innovative contribution. He has been knighted won numerous awards and was nominated in 1986 for the Nobel Peace Prize. And yet in many ways he was an unlikely hero. By his own admission he was a marginally successful musician who had been leading a desolate life and making little effort to contribute to anything other than his musical career. He had been born poor and never received much of an education. As one journalist wrote & 8220 God opened the door and saw this scruffy Irishman and said & 8216 Oh what the heck he& 8217 ll do.& 8217 & 8221 And he & 173 did.& 8211 In 1997 the World Bank reported that an estimated thirty million people had contracted HIV AIDS and 90 percent of them were in developing countries. Statistics from the UN show this number had climbed to forty million by 2004 and is predicted to climb by another twenty million in the next two decades. Among those countries hardest hit is South Africa which has the highest number of infected people of any country.By any number of measures Brazil should be at the top of the list with South Africa. In 1990 Brazil had almost twice as many cases of HIV AIDS as South Africa and a World Bank study predicted that Brazil would have & 173 off-& 173 the-& 173 chart infection rates for HIV AIDS by the turn of the millennium. The World Bank researchers told Brazil to focus on & 173 prevention & 8211 and in effect to be prepared to lose all those infected before the epidemic was under & 173 control.At the start of the new millennium as predicted one in four people in South Africa were infected with HIV. However in Brazil a miracle occurred the country& 8217 s infection rate had dropped to 0.6 percent 1 in 160 . Today Brazil is touted as a model for developing countries fighting HIV AIDS. How did this miracle & 173 happen?If you look for a charismatic leader who inspired the people you quickly realize there wasn& 8217 t one. Instead Brazilians at all levels from government bureaucrats to local community leaders joined forces in the service of a key guiding principle no person no matter how poor insignificant or illiterate could be written off as beyond cure. Liberation theology a version of Catholicism that infuses Brazilian culture proclaims the importance of empowering the poor and creating liberty for all. Health care workers looked for ways to ensure treatment would be available to all citizens regardless of their ability to pay and found resources that were hidden from external observers and HIV AIDS experts. Volunteers from churches and other & 173 non-& 173 health charities worked alongside the clinical experts and became invaluable in both helping people follow complicated drug regimens and learning ways to prevent infection. At the government level a clause in an international trade agreement was used to wage a successful legal battle for the right to make generic drugs in cases of national emergency which reduced the price of HIV AIDS & 173 drugs.To spread the prevention message the Brazilians decided to use humour rather than fear. Clowns wearing costumes made of condoms handed out condom lollipops to drive home the safe& 173 sex message in a fun and memorable way. One playful billboard depicted three beautiful women sitting around a condom-shaped table. The thought bubbles above their heads all said & 8220 Si.& 8221 The message was that women will say yes yes yes to men who use condoms! These campaigns were in stark contrast to those in most other countries which stressed & 8220 Use condoms or you could die.& 8221 Clearly Brazilians did not want anyone to die of AIDS. But they reasoned that youth who were the most susceptible to contracting HIV often feel invulnerable and rarely are thinking about death especially when they are contemplating & 173 sex.& 8211 Live Aid is a miracle in & 173 close-& 173 up which in our awestruck or inadequate moments we can put down to the actions of a & 173 hero & 8211 an individual larger than ourselves who is capable of changing the course of history. How we wonder could Bob Geldof have done this by himself? What was happening around him and to him that made such action possible? In his own words & 8220 Doors impenetrable a week earlier swung open effortlessly.& 8221 Many of our good intentions seem to be smothered before we get off the couch. How were his efforts magnified and & 173 amplified? Read more See more
