The U2 Moment That Changed Everything: Live Aid 30th Anniversary

I remember watching U2 perform at Live Aid thirty years ago today.  I saw their concert in Hartford, CT a few months earlier but I was a new fan then.  When I saw them perform “Bad” at Live Aid it catapulted them in my mind to a new level.  This was a band that was going to last for the ages.  When Bono reached out to the crowd, it was like nothing I had ever seen before.  This is a singer who doesn’t just touch an audience, they become one.

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!

  1. I think Kevin has just stumbled on the galvanizing and coalescing song for the “Parents Know Children Best” movement. This would be nice if played at the awards ceremony and at every gathering of parents angry that Corporate America is taking our rights away just so their top lines increase..
