saving the world with (RED)

Quote from an 11-year-old African boy. This is what I call smart. Not even those stupid ang mohs who think they know so much about the world could beat him.

“‘We know about AIDS,’ he said, ‘much more than the uncles who are supposed to care for us and try to teach us about it. But if you don’t care about yourself,’ he went on, ‘it really doesn’t matter how much you know about HIV and AIDS, you are still going to put yourself in situations where you will probably get it.'”

Taken from the article “Product Red: The Marketing of African Misery” by Teresa Barnes.

Ok, we had better stop thinking so highly of ourselves just coz we donated some money. The money will help a little, but it will not save the world.
