Similarities. Differences.

This past week I was reminiscing about a U2 concert that I went to nearly 10 years ago.

There was something about that concert that had such an impact on me that I’m still talking about it today.

What was so powerful about that experience was singing – even shouting – out the words to their songs in unison with 65,000 other people that filled Soldier Field that beautiful September evening.

In that moment there was a unity, a bond that transcended race, religion, culture, political and gender bias…and every other thing that can divide people.

It was like we were a brotherhood – a family. We were all set free that night.

That’s the power of music. It helps us to see that, though we have different opinions about some matters, at a very deep primal and spiritual level we are all more similar than we are different. Where we differ is not nearly as important as where we are the same.

Sometimes writing about it just doesn’t do it justice. So, I made a video about it. If you’re interested, you can watch it here… (Hint: it involves me playing a little guitar.)


Elevation by U2: A message of love and unity



In any case, I just wanted to put the idea on your subconscious radar to be looking for ways that you are more alike than you are different from the people in your world this week.
