Peaches Geldof investigates the British teenage experience, she meets youngsters from around the country and then argues that their outrageous behavior should be tolerated as an important stage of their development.
For goodness sake! What is wrong with having a concert!? Not everyone can rush off to Africa and administer vital medication to dying children. Not everyone wants to post their leftover food to starving children. This concert was simply a way for everyone (who wanted too) to feel that they have done something positive towards making a change. It was a POSITIVE thing to do.
Those of us lucky enough to be at the concert left that evening feeling human. Those who watched it on TV felt the power of that message. We had been forced to get in touch with our emotions, whether that be elation, excitement, empathy, passion.... whatever the emotions we felt, they made us remember what it was like to be human.
Reminding us fortunate westerners what it is like to be a real human.
And that, my friend, is what i believe is the key to making a change in this very un-human world.
