No, that doesn't sound like preaching to me. Sounds more like a 38 year old
man whose become "less militant about peace" than he was in the past and
now weary of strife. And the way Bono sings 'Please' after those words is
heart wrenching. To me all the pain of the world is in his voice. To me it
sounds like a plea........a prayer.

I pray Bono's prayer is answered.......

Faith, Hope and Love,
