"Every great thing balances
at all times on the razors edge of disaster...
When you are doing something
that you really feel is something that is very special,
and you run into the
obstacles, that you always do, and the bigger the project
the more obstacles and the
more crisis will exists... it is when you push through
those problems, when you
don't throw in the towel and you make it work...
It is easier to do the
impossible than the ordinary...I promise...it is easier
the impossible than the ordinary. You know why?
When you show people that you
are trying something that impossible, then people
want on your side...Hands
Across America was completely impossible, but I was
too naive to believe it, I
didn't know better. I did not know better to think that I
could not get 45 of the top
people in the world together in a room to record a song.
It had never been done
before, but I didn't know better. Sometimes it is better
to not know better, sometimes
it is better to just believe you can do it.

His exchange with
the kids was just great, and he gave them some news about the
of We Are The World,
and got some suggestions from their generation of music, who
they would like
to see join in to
help starving children again...
