During a U2 show in San Diego, the singer Bono reached out to Americans who feel discouraged and reminded them of the greatness of their country.

America “has become our second home,” Bono said. “It’s not just a country, is it? … It’s a great idea; it’s one of the best ideas ever.”

“A country built on hope cannot be driven by fear,” Bono went on to say in the brief address in between songs. “A country founded on equality cannot allow hate to pull it apart.”

On Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere listened to Bono’s words of encouragement in a time when Americans could especially use some perspective.

“What a great message,” Glenn said.
