25 Years of Inspiration from U2

I went to the U2 concert last night here in DC at Fed Ex field. Definitely one of those life list things. Amazing experience to be with 80,000 other people singing along.

The whole show reminded me of why I've been a fan of them my whole life - from finding solace in the spiritual overtones of their lyrics as a teenager [I had an album copy of The Unforgettable Fire], to being in awe of their global activism as a college student, to celebrating their innovation and reinvention over the years as a [sort of] middle aged person.

See the set list and one of my favorite moments in the show.

Thanks U2 for a lifetime, and more, of inspiration.
