Neal proposed to me at a U2 concert. It was actually his first concert and he planned to propose to the song “With or Without You,” my favorite U2 song of all time. This song is founded for me in the angst of high school, how you could love something and it still can cause you pain, and I always find listening to the song very moving. Well he became very nervous at the concert because they didn’t play it until the second encore. But he still did it, and we are together and have three beautiful children today all because of it. I also think marriage is a bit like this song – you have your up and down moments, but in the end it all comes down to what is in your heart and commitment. Also in a way, I could now say that Down syndrome relates to this song. I can’t live with or without it. It is still difficult at times, but then in other ways it has changed my life in such beautiful ways. Funny how a song that brought us together now applies to the diagnosis of our little girl. Anyway, I was searching around on YouTube and found these. Enjoy!
