'I want you to send a message of love along the border to the good and the great people of the United States of America.' announced Bono, during 'Pride' at the third show in Mexico tonight. ' I want you to send a message to people of conscience.
'Ask them to answer the question. Why is it that all we hear on the news is how drugs are smuggled through Mexico to the United States ?
'And we don't hear about all the automatic weapons  that are being smuggled into Mexico from the United States. Nine thousand registered arms dealers on the other side of the border. Nine thousand.
'Most of the murders committed here are from weapons sold in the United States of America.
'We sing this for the innocents who have lost their lives in the violence here,' he said, before continuing the song with an alternate lyric.

'Late in the evening, April 15
Automatic round takes a mother and child.
Free at last,  they took your life
A lioness and her pride
In the name of love....'
