The G8 is not God.
Tony Blair has not been able to save London,
so why should we believe that he can save Africa.
The G8 will make grand gestures
and spend enormous amounts of money,
but it will not save Africa.
The Good Samaritan did not make grand speeches.
He did not give away other people's money.
He went into the danger zone.
He used his own supplies
He got his hands dirty
and made a dramatic difference to one persons life.
Millions of Good Samaritans could change Africa,
one person at a time.
The G8 just tries to be god.
