This is Bono accepting the NAACP Chairman’s Award. Wow, he’s a good speaker. When you have 7 minutes to spare, watch it. The whole thing. To the finish. (Hat tip to Mike Todd)
Whatever happened to “the God I believe in isn’t short of cash, Mist-terrr!” Bono? I miss him. And I have a hard time taking seriously anyone who wears sunglasses indoors. At night. 🙂
Hey, if the sunglasses get the message out, I’m all for it. So you should use this smiley: 😎
Damn…So many quotable quotes…so many movable moments…
And the people got off there feet and rose from their chairs.
I can only hope that when I get my 15 minutes of fame, I will have something half as good to say. I’ll stand up for that. 😎
So, what do we do? I don’t want to stand by and say, “But there are so many important causes” (human trafficking is another plague that comes to mind), freeze up with a sense of helplessness, and do nothing.
