Art inspires art. I was reminded of this yesterday.
My sweetie and I attended the U2 360 concert and it was amazing! Yes, the music is great. Yes, the set and atmosphere were super charged. But what made it inspiring?
U2 uses their celebrity for good. Agree or disagree with their politics, you can't deny that they use every tool in their box to share their message.
We raised our hands for the refugees in Burma and heard clips from Gandhi and shouted in celebration for the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International.
It was moving.
And...it came on the heels of finishing this really spectacular debut novel...
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. I can't tell you what an important read this is. It's poignant and heart breaking and inspiring...
it, too, is full of humanity.
Tell me, what inspires you?
