Peace Summit Award 2013
Sharon Stone has been chosen as the Peace Summit Award 2013 Laureate recipient. The Award is bestowed for her activities that brought solidarity and new hope to the millions of people who have fought and are fighting against the tragedy of HIV / AIDS. She stressed that AIDs remains a vast challenge across the globe.
“I can tell you that now that we have drugs, we have still lost 40 million people to AIDS. There were times when the burden of that felt like It was going to fall on the floor and never get up again.. ..I can tell you how much good work we have done. We have changed the face of AIDS, but still one child dies every other minute. I want you to think about how many children have died since we came here this morning, and I want you to feel the weight of that upon you. Because until we a raise every border of prejudice, every border of inconsideration and until we use every bid of who you are and who you are meant to be, until you stretch yourself out to the fondness of greatness of your own perfection the puzzle peace of humanity won’t fit together perfectly and there won’t be an end to hatred and to disease.I ask you stretch yourself, stretch yourself completely and end the pain. Thank you so much for acknowledge me today i cannot tell you how proud i am.”
