Video of Bono's Acceptance Speech For NAACP Award

JR Woodward has posted a video of Bono accepting the NACCP Award and it’s definitely worth the watch.

A couple quotes from the video are,

“Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice but a command.”

“Whatever thoughts we have about God, who He is or even if God exists, most will agree that God has a special place for the poor. The poor are where God lives. God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is where the opportunity is lost and lives are shattered. God is with the mother who has infected her child with a virus that will take both their lives. God is under the rubble of the cries that we hear during wartime. God, my friends, is with the poor. And God is with us, if we are with them.”
