About This Quote


Source: "Three Actions for Africa." TED2005. Feb. 2005. Conference Presentation. Additional Information: This quote by U2 frontman Bono means that a person should not have to die because they live in a certain part of the world. Unfortunately, says Bono, this is true for many people, including people who die of disease because they live in a part of Africa where there is not adequate health care to treat common diseases. The quote is from Bono's 2005 TED Talk about his mission to end hunger, poverty, and disease in Africa. Watch the full TED Talk here: Bono - Three Actions for Africa
