El 14 de junio de 2002, Michael Jackson pronunció un discurso en la
ciudad de Éxeter (Reino Unido), sobre los niños, el sida
y el amor fraternal.
"Everyday we hear of war on the news, on the radio and television and the newspapers, always of war.
We hear of nations hurting each other, of neighbors hurting each other, of families hurting each other and the children killing each other.
We must learn to live and love each other before it’s too late.
We have to stop!
We have to stop the prejudice, we have to stop the hating, we have to stop living in fear of our own neighbors.
I would like all of you now to take the hand of the person to the left and to the right. Go ahead! Right now! I mean it! Don’t be shy! Do it! It starts now! To the person next to you. To the left and the right. I mean it. Right now! Go ahead! Don’t be shy. Do it! Do it! Now, tell the person ... tell the person next to you that you care for them. Tell them that you care for them. Tell them that you love them. Tell them that you love them. This is what makes the difference.
Together we can make a change of the world.
Together we can help to stop racism.
Together we can help to stop prejudice. We can help the world live without fear. It’s our only hope, without hope we are lost...
...That’s beautiful. That’s a sign of hope. That’s for all the children of the world. I love you. And thank you for everything. All my love.
And God Bless!"
