"America might be the greatest song the world has yet to hear. It's a wild thought. It's an exciting thought that after 246 years of this struggle for freedom, after 246 years of inching and crawling toward freedom, sometimes on your belly, sometimes on your knees, sometimes marching, sometimes striding—this might be the moment you let freedom ring or in my case, let freedom sing."
- Bono, acceptance speech J. William Fulbright Prize, 2022
