I could not care less, the most important thing to me is happening right now.......it's RAINING!!!!! we sooooooo needed rain, please let it persist. The ground smells so grateful and so am I.
So I suppose it's what's important to you. U2 are by far my favourite band on the planet, so far ahead of any others it's difficult to put into words.But my world won't end if they don't tour here, whereas it will if it doesn't rain. And my greatest dream is my babies grow up to be silviculturalists and musicians and not soldiers. A U2 tour would be a bonus after that.
Don't worrry amanda, I'm fully behind you with the petition and emails to U2.com, but what happens, happens. I know you were jesting up there, just had to add my 1c(half UScent these days)
cass, I would like you to know that I loved what you said above, especially when you mention what you wish for your kids. What a lighthearted spirit you have. It helps me to put things in perspective again. Okay, U2 won't come to Brazil neither go to Oz, due to the economic matters, so what? It's not the end of the world. You need rain down under. We need to take care of our children here. That's what really matters, after all.
