I just tried it from here. It works.

As I watch and listen to Bono in this I end up with goosebumps. I thought it important enough to spread it around. :)

Thanks Jason. I couldn't figure out how to do that. And thank you too Lisa! Everybody reading, please go there and sign up. :)

By the way, Cornerstone is a huge "Woodstock-like" Christian Festival put on every summer in Chicago through the Jesus people movement, which is very involved in inner city and street ministry all year. :)

Beyonce, Bono Visit AIDS-Stricken Babies In South Africa

U2 frontman continues to fight for more funding to battle AIDS crisis in Africa.

"The thing that angers me more than anything is stupidity," he said. "And people are dying for the most stupid of reasons, and that reason is money," Bono said.

Bono compared the bureaucratic delay to a fire truck arriving at a blaze and being unable to turn on the water. "I just think there's an incredible opportunity to take the prosperity we have in the West and turn it into goodwill in the poorest places on the planet and transform lives and communities. And we can't afford to wait."

Most political pop stars who speak their minds never take the necessary steps to cause actual constructive change. Not only has Bono gone straight to the politicians who can make a difference, he's learned how to navigate within the system and speak their language. He has also refused to be dismissed or denied.
