Early morning, April 4,
A shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life,
They could not take your pride. U2 – Pride
These words were written by Bono, lead singer of U2, as a tribute to his childhood hero. He is my champion of courage because of his campaign to stop the crisis affecting Africa, including debts and AIDS. He believes that these issues are not about charity, but about equality and justice. Like Dr. King, Bono is an advocate of social reform who won’t give up until he has made a difference.
Yes, make a difference.
