Bono's Speech at NAACP

I found this on a friends blog. Bono says God is with the poor, and if we help the poor God is with us! I agree with him!!! God's heart is for the poor and we need to share His heart! You don't need to share Bono's "one" project to help, but everyone should find a way to help. This is one of Gods highest commands. Read Matthew 25

the last words spoken by famous people

Nicole and I are listening to the one year Bible every night together. The speaker mentioned the last words of The Queen of England Elizabeth I, who died in 1603. She said,"All my possessions for a moment of time".I thought this was profound! Both Juergen's parents are very ill. It makes me realize how fast this life is flying by. My eye's don't work as well as they once did. I have to color my graying hair. My baby daughter is taller then I am. My possessions don't seem so important to me anymore. I looked up some other dying words of famous people. Some are profound, others funny and others sad.
