I don't know how much the rest of you ladies know about what's going on ... but My Friend here tells me that while we are eating a 100 million children are nearly starving. There's just millions of kids who'd kill for the amount of food fat old me left on the side of my plate. Children so weak that they'll die if a miss.quit.OH bites* them.
And so they do die. One every three seconds ... snap ... there they go. .. Snap. And another' one. Anyone who has kids must know that parents in Africa must love their kids as much as they. And to watch your kids die. To watch them die and then die yourself in trying to protect them. It's not right. And tomorrow, 8 of the men sitting round this table actually have the ability to sort this by making a few great decisions.
And if they don't some day, someone else will. And they'll look back on us lot and say “People were actually dying in the millions unnecessarily in front of you, on your TV screens,. What were ye thinking? You knew what to do to stop it happening. And you didn't do those things. Shame on you.' So that's what you have to do tomorrow. Be great instead of being ashamed. It can;t be impossible. It must be possible.
- Girl In The Café (movie quote)
