Looking for Bono's speech at Harvard (2001)

Hi,

This is my first time around in this community, so hello everyone

I'm looking for a good-quality copy of Bono's speech at Harvard. There used to be one out here, but the link's not active anymore.

Can anyone help me out?

Thanks in advance.

So my brother-in-law made a DVD of this right after it happened and showed it to me during a visit. Bono is about 5 minutes into the speech when he says"I'd like to take this moment to wish my dear friend Valerie a happy Bday" I almost fell off the couch. It took me all but 10 seconds to realize that my brother-in-law added his voice to a part that matched Bono's lips. It is to this day one of my best bday presents ever.

Okay, not as good as Bono actually wishing me a Happy Bday, but I'll take it!

I know you've got it by now, but maybe you find interesting to know that you can find most of Bono's speeches in the US with youtube links and complete transcriptions in the American Rhetoric page:

American Rhetoric: Bono - 2001 Harvard Commencement Address
