Bono Wins an Award from the NAACP

I was reading around the 'net and found a post by JR Woodward that had a video of Bono's acceptance speech for an NAACP award. To put it as simply as I know how: his speech was simply beautiful. See for yourself:



That last part was amazing, no matter where you happen to stand on liberation theology. I was reminded of Isaiah 1 and all of Amos, not to mention Luke 6:20 and Philippians 2:3-4.

I love that clip. It reminds me of the prophetic preaching tradition. Passionate and convicting.
