Jon and I sat at the table in the library. It was study hall and we were whispering-arguing about the merits of U2's Joshua Tree. He was trying to convince me of its Christian value and its coolness quotient, while I was having none of it.
Fast forward nearly twenty years. I'm driving down the road in my minivan, "With or Without You" is playing on my phat Windstar speakers through my sweet iPod. I'm on drums and lead vocals. My four-year-old, Anna, is on guitar, air-fretting in the backseat and providing back-up vocals. The windows are down. Life is good. And Jon, wherever you are, you were right.
