"As a person, as a performer, you're looking for wholeness. On a spiritual level, I think that's God's design for us. And that often amounts to embracing contradictions." — Bono

Week In Review: September 17, 2020

Two updates, both with video, in the news this week. @U2 brings you the best in U2 news.

 

Bono Speaks At The Virtual G7 Summit

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hosted a virtual G7 meeting to discuss climate change with global leaders from around the world. A few luminary speakers from outside of politics, including Bono, also joined to speak at the event. Pelosi shared Bono's nine-minute speech on Twitter and Facebook.

Bono talks about how he now looks up to global leaders like Madeleine Albright and Jim Yong Kim the same way he looked up to Bowie and The Beatles when he was growing up. He describes them and others as the "guardians of liberal democracy," and how leaders like those in the G7 are important to maintaining the health of democracy as well as fighting authoritarianism around the world. "You on the left and you on the right have so much more in common than the alternative that wants to replace you," Bono said, imploring the politicians to remember the importance of freedom.
