U2, a Worldwide Pandemic, Streets on Fire, and a Need for Grace


I try not to do any social media on Sundays if I can help it so I most likely will not see any comments till later tonight but I wanted to post this, well…post-haste.

We, as a family, were listening to U2 in the car because, well it’s a day that ends in “y” and we heard the following lyrics:

Sixteen of June, Chinese stocks are going up
And I’m coming down with some new Asian virus
JuJu man, JuJu man
Doc says you’re fine, or dying
Nine-oh-nine, St. John Divine on the line, my pulse is fine
But I’m running down the road like loose electricity
While the band in my head plays a striptease
The roar that lies on the other side of silence
The forest fire that is fear so deny it
Walk out into the street
With your arms out
The people we meet
Will not be drowned out
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe now
We are people borne of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown
Walk out, into the sunburst street
Sing your heart out, sing my heart out
I’ve found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all that I found
And I can breathe
Breathe now
