Liner Notes World News In World happenings, no other story dominated the headlines as did the famine in Africa. The story proved to be so powerful because it shoved a sudden realization in our faces; humanity is still in a struggle to survive! In an age where the world sits on the brink of global nuclear war, the famine brought people together to help each other. With 150 million people in 25 African countries on the verge of destruction, there has been a concerted effort by many people to bring immediate relief. For 1985, we will remember the effort given by musical per- formers to bring this tragedy to light and strive to make a differ- ence. The Christmas season, 1984, brought about a song entitled, " Do They Know It ' s Christmas? " which was performed by a group of British superstars called Band Aid. Revenues from this album Prince Charles and Lady Di gave birth to another heir to the throne in other world happenings. 14 Ronald Reagan was re-elected by a wide margin over Walter Mondale in the 1984 Presidential Election. went to famine-relief, but more importantly, the severity of the crisis was put in its tragic perspective. Months later, the per- formers from the United States answered with a similar song entitled, " We are the World. " The same principles are involved; these include purchasing of food, medicine, and other necessities for survival with the purchase of the merchandise distributed by USA for Africa. Through the help of these two organizations, aid is being distributed to the 25 needy African countries. Bridgewater State College has contributed to the famine relief cause by donating funds to Oxfam America and S.H.A,R.E.. We will remember these events because everyone made a differ- ence. When Africa is restored to a functional level, the world can take pride in the fact that we came together to save lives. And remember... We are the World.
