Lisa, that is simply NOT the truth but that's alright.



Bono spoke to me and his friend who brought him over for nearly five minutes about a project that I am currently involved with for a friend of his.


He openly thanked me in front of the crowd for what I was doing with this project and asked me to do all that I can to continue assisting his friend with this project.



What happened between us is exactly as I stated above - I have no need to embellish.



I am now completely over my patience with the constant onslaught of character assissanation that I am experiencing here and I simply won't stand for it any longer.

I have not put down any body's story and I encourage all of this sh*t to stop.



I will contact the mods and Elvis tomorrow about it because when y'all begin to lie about people, especially those who are with Bono's own friends, then there must be some price to pay.


SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES - LEAVE MINE ALONE !

According to the video, Bono had no idea who you were or what these crafts were that you were selling, jamila.

Hi all, I don't normally post over here at Interference as you can see by my low post count.

But after what happened to my son in Philly, a met a beautiful soul who asked if I would post this story and these pictures here at Interference. In the chaos of the moment, I didn't get a chance to ask her for her name, but I promised that I would post the story and pics from my son's meeting with Bono. So... if the person who approached me is reading this... this is for you and I am so sorry I didn't get a chance to talk to you more. It was crazy and hectic after we came out and I needed to get my little boy in a cab and get him home. It was very long and emotional day for him.

Okay... the story is that my little boy is a patient of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, he has Leukemia and his wish was to meet Bono. He is currently in the off therapy stage of his treatment and we are waiting on a cured diagnosis. We have to wait at least another year and a half for that. We still go to monthly treatments for blood counts and overall check ups. But he is off the chemo treatments and he is doing well. He was diagnosed in Oct 2003, two weeks shy of his second Birthday. He took to the song Vertigo when it came out, he listened to the song constantly and it became a place for him that was a happy one. He took to Bono as a sort of source of happiness as well. Brandon took to Bono as I hero, I guess. I don't really know how to explain it, I was and am still amazed at my son and the love he has for Bono. I don't even think I realized how much until the night in Philly when he was granted his wish by the people of the National Constitution Center.

Anyhow... he drew a picture for Bono when his was just 4 that I was able to give to Bono February 2006 after his speech in D.C. Brandon was in remission then.

Enough back story.

As I said, the people at the National Constitution Center were made aware of my little boy's wish to meet Bono and they did everything they could and more to make his wish come true.

I will be forever grateful to them and have begun to send off my letters of thanks to the many who played a part in granting my son's wish.

Before I post the pics, that will speak for themselves, I want to say that I was a little guarded in sharing this moment and these pics because it is my son but, I do feel that it is stories like this one that should be told. I didn't talk to Bono at all, this moment wasn't about me. The only thing I mentioned was the picture that Brandon drew for him. Bono remembered immediately and turned to Brandon and said "Wow... that was you? and then "You beat it! You beat this!" I began to cry then and Bono caught me off guard by pulling me into a hug and holding me. He kissed my forehead and kept his arm around me until the time where he picked up my little boy. I didn't expect that, I kept back and off to the side for most of this meeting and just cried while watching my son have this time with Bono.

My son was so excited when he saw Bono for the first time he was jumping up and down. To my surprise, even in that room of incredible people, the second Bono saw my son, he was all about Brandon. I will never forget the joy on my son's face as I stood back and watched his dream come true. I will never forget the love Bono showed my son.

And... I will never forget all the love everyone had shown my son when we came out of the building. Thank you all for that, thank you for understanding the wish of little boy.

Without further delay here are the pics (btw... I am grateful to the woman from the National Constitution Center who took my camera from me and took all of these beautiful pics. There were some pics taken by photographers from the Center and they took down my name and address to send them to us. They were incredible people and I will always remember what they did for my son)













Kelly,

Thank you for posting your story & pictures. As some have said, it's moments like these.... I cried the first time that JCoster posted it from Zootopia and again when you did. I can't find the words to type express myself clearly, but I wish you & your family nothing but health, happiness and strength. And Brandon couldn't have picked a better role model. Please come back & visit Interference. It's usually a lot of fun. And we have smilies And let us know how Brandon is doing

Spoken just like it happened. Jamilia, you did not speak with Bono for 5 minutes, once he got near you next thing eveyrone knew he was being ushered by Brian to his car.

You seem to forget, you were standing at the curb just like everyone else was waiting for Bono to come out, if you are such a good friend why didn't Brian escort you to see him. But, no Brian came over to us.

And what you did with Brandon is uncomprehensible!

I hope I never see you at an event again. How can you possible deny this when a number of people saw and heard what you did?

omg, this thread has turned hysterical.

As far as I could see this meet and greet was just as chaotic as most of them turn out to be, (no more no less).

Maybe if everyone had just followed the guidelines that were set out by Gerry (not sure if he spells with with a J or not), more people would have gotten a chance to meet Bono. As it happened no one in the front row (except Dan) moved to the back once they had had there moment.

Unfortunately, this is what happens at most events where Bono stops to talk. Too many people too little time.

It was very cool to see that little boy and his mother come out after meeting him. You could see the excitement in them.

Hey ET is that you Eden from New Zealand?? You're right, that was a great time....trying to find a cab being wet and in the cold at 1am after the car got towed...good times!

I think perhaps I need to remind everyone, including any new members, that personal attacks / name calling towards other members is NOT allowed. Threatening other members is also not allowed. Jamila, I'm sure you are aware of our rules since you've been here for quite a while now. I understand you feel you need to defend yourself, however, I think the best thing would be for you to refrain from posting in this thread any further. I do not want to have to close this thread since there are many wonderful posts and experiences here and those people have a right to share them without having to read a bunch of crazy drama.
