I am a pretty big U2 Fan ... and one of my faves is "Do they know it's Christmas" from 1983. It was performed by Band Aid. There's a classic line, that Bono belts out. It goes like this, "Well tonight thank G_d it's them, instead of you." He's at his throaty syrupy best and whenever I hear that song, that's my best part.
And you know, that song is now almost a quarter century old. Nothing's changed! Except one thing. I am truly glad for what I have. I have a good business. I have a family that loves me. And I have my health.
Happy holidays and I every day, thank G_d that it's them, instead of me.
My 2009 resolution: Give more money to them.
Thanks for the inspiration Bono.
