Hard to believe it has been thirty-three years since Bono & company penned this song for their 1983 album ‘War’. Although it was originally written for Lech Walesa and the Polish Solidarity movement, I find a lot of relevance in this song as applied to the issues of today.
I have always loved U2. Once upon a time several years ago I was lucky enough to meet Bono and The Edge at a loading dock in Chicago. They were both very kind and considerate gentlemen, worthy of their super-power status!
In honor of U2, the New Year and my feelings about the current state of the world, I put together this (bittersweet — but mostly optimistic) video.
Hope you are having a fantastic New Year’s Day!
