Bono on How To Bring About Peace in the World





I read this in the NY Times on Sunday 6th of December – Bono (U2) was getting an interview about Paris and at the end of the article he said the following:

When you get bleak about things and think, Gosh, is there an end to this? Yeah, there is, it just takes lots of work, lots of time.  I was never a hippie – I’m punk rock, really.  I was never into:  ’Let’s hold hands, and peace will come just because we’ll dream it into the world’.  No.  Peace is the opposite of dreaming. It’s built slowly and surely through brutal compromises and tiny victories that you don’t even see.  It’s a messy business, bringing peace into the world. But it can be done, I’m sure of that.”
