I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

Bono: “We love America. I think this is why you say we are allowed to talk about America. We come here like Pilgrims in some sense – – America is the promised land and I feel like an annoying fan sometimes following America into the bathroom with the liner notes … “you didn’t play the declaration of independence” – – I’m that guy, we’re that group. We love this country. And we love the landscape and it’s not just the physical landscape, its the psychological landscape, it’s a spiritual landscape…” (May, 2017)

“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” was released in 1985 (32 years ago! Wow!).  It was won the Grammy Award for the Song of the Year as did the Album for the Album of the Year.


Thank you Susan

  8. What I’ve heard from most foreigners in regards to this country is that yes, they love the USA. But upon further dialogue, I discover what they love is freedom – they love our Constitution. They love the dream of Democracy. Yet both these stand to be lost, if we do not participate and advocate for both. Democracy in the US has become a corporatocracy. US Americans in general have taken liberties for granted, and this is to their peril, especially in today’s political climate. We need to be vigilant as well as participatory. Aloha, David.
