"we are wounded by fear, injured in doubt.. we scorch the Earth, set fire to the sky, we stoop so low, to reach so high."
It is truly sad that this uncaring, and ever increasingly selfish world listens more to the hate-filled, self-promoting, anti-american, demagoguery of Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Sarah Palin et. al., instead of the truly caring and Christian concerns of people like Bono. Thank God that there are people like this to offset the misplaced anger of the ever increasing anti-Christian, neo-conservative and Tea Bagger movement in this country.
If we turn the TV off, resist the lure and convenience of bigotry and hated, look to our own values, family and neighbors for answers instead of politicians and the corporations that own them, and man up to our own responsibilities, then you'd be surprised at the reduction of stress in our lives and the increase in our sense of empowerment.
