Of course Bono can say it better than I:

The shackles are undone, the bullets quit the gun
The heat thats in the sun will keep us when theres none
The rule has been disproved, the stone it has been moved
The grave is now a groove, all debts are removed

This is what I feel after I have read all your kind responses to my post from earlier – thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.
