This week marked the 25th anniversary of Live Aid. What a spectacular world event it was all those twenty five years ago. It was a wonderful day of music and fellowship, but more importantly a day for the world to become more aware of the tragedy happening in Africa. Unfortunately, things are still not perfect on the beautiful continent.

Sir Bob Geldof was the primary organizer for Live Aid. He continues to work for aid in Africa and stopping poverty around the world. I think he's a pretty incredible man, and I'm in awe of him and his humanitarian efforts.
Richard and I are remembering Live Aid by watching our DVD set of the day. So many fun performances and really great music. And, some of the things we laugh at because they are "just SO 80's"! All in all the day holds happy memories for us and we're enjoying reliving some of them this weekend.
