Bono the Prophet

[amended 2/15/06 -- fixed link to Bono's speech.]

This is really worth a listen. Paul "Bono" Hewson addresses the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. yesterday (Feb. 2, 2006). He challenges the U.S. to increase foreign relief for AIDS by 1% of the federal budget. The speech/sermon is about 21 minutes.

I hesitate to make anyone a hero, but, I can't help it. I've looked up to Bono for his passion and desire to make a difference in the world since before I was a Christian. He's been a significant figure for me since the early 80's. His faith has matured, as has mine, and my heart resonates with so much of what he says.

And, oh yeah, he's got a band that is pretty good.
