Because without people like Bono, the word "Poverty and AIDS" would not be spread to those who need to understand it more and that can help make the impact that these kinds of issues. His positive impact and education through not only his fans but so many people worldwide is what has driven a lot of the help and aid that has been given. Keep doing what your doing BONO!

I so much agree, his passion and commitment are so important to me...
Even with his music, he speaks out, but his actions in his campaigns to truly make a difference in this world, speak out to me and make this artist/activist an enormously admirable human being and true citizen of the world, and yes, I also admire him as you do...Thank you,
michele

Bono has had many detractors through the years regarding his activism and outspokenness regarding issues that are important to him. His celebrity in the music industry has opened doors for him that were previously closed to others who are as passionate as he is about debt, AIDS, and trade in Africa. He is unique in the fact he does not just pay lip service to a cause or make a donation to a cause. He uses his intellect, and natural ability to reach people through words to move 1.5 million people to sign the One petition.
In addition to all the work he does on behalf of Africa, he is someone who can be looked up to as a good father, husband, friend and artist.
So, I say thank you Bono for inspiring me to be more aware, concerned and active in this world.

Bono is one those people who are true and genuine. His non-stop campaigning to end poverty and debt in Third World nations is legendary and he is leaving a positive impact in a world in chaos. Thank you Bono, for making a tremendous difference in the world.

U2's music has always spoken to me on a deeper level than most; it's good to see Bono, who's been made a "star" in our social realm, remaining grounded and "real" enough to barter his influence to help the helpless, the needy. when the people who made their way into that perceived "circle of greatness" turn their minds, hearts and more of their money toward helping to resolve the growing pains of human society, it's a wonderful thing, and hopefully will spread to other "privileged" among us.

Randy's words ring so very true. Bono is a great inspiration to me on so many levels, musically, intellectually, compassionately. I've been so fortunate to see U2 many times, I remember in particular going alone to an Actung Baby concert in Ft. Lauderdale in the 90s, and across that crowded venue, it felt that Bono was singing directly to me from his heart. He Never Fails to "Elevate" my mind and spirit. Bono, you're a wonder and blessing beyond compare. Thank God for you.

Why is Bono such a one in a million guy?
Is he normal or is he realy crazy?
He could be like all the other stars!
But he makes a huge difference! We can all learn from him!
