One boy washed up!

DAMN YOU, U2! Once again, U2 has punched my conscience into tears by changing the lyrics of Pride. “One boy washed up on an empty beach” has resonated in my soul has that one line echoing in my head. The current refugee issue in Europe has stirred the continent into a frenzy. Are you going to be a continent that has an open heart, with mercy, Bono asks. Well, are you? Don’t be of the mind set that “I’m only one person, what can I do?” If that image of the 3 year old, face down on the beach doesn’t stir you into some action, any action, I don’t know what will! Me, I just wrote an email to my state senator, Senator Elizabeth Warren demanding action on our front. I don’t know if I should be saying “Damn you, U2,” or “Thank you,” for waking this conscience up and getting me to act. Join me in doing SOMETHING about this!
