mic in hand
no time for love songs.
Sunday Bloody Sunday
conjured violence and strife,
words and mem’ry hung in the air.
Broker of peace, maligned and revered,
looked on with an unimpeachable smile.
Lifelong commitment — years that matter
to lives spared from hellish existence.
Men with a purpose: cancel debt,
feed the hungry, fight disease —
they make it look easy!
Critics come and go.

Hey, that’s me between Bill Clinton and Bono! Or as a friend referred to it: a Bill, Bono and Belinda moment (hubs standing next to me). Yes, lucky me, I had a fun time at an amazing concert this past weekend. It was a certain ex-president’s 65th birthday celebration and a fundraiser billed as A Decade of Difference was held to benefit his foundation (be sure to click on the link to learn more about the good work that they do).
