U2 opened my eyes to embracing the possibility of actually helping people around the world who desperately need it, instead of being cynically annoyed by it like most "regular people" in my life.
I understand how so many middle class folk in the first world can be cynical and get angry at some rich, pompous rock star who constantly bugs them to spend their hard-earned cash on poor people in Africa, because it can be a struggle just to get by, to keep a job and stuff.
But once I understood just how poor 2/3 of the planet is, and how as little as $20 can give an actual human being access to clean drinking water for 20 years, or how a few US dollars for mosquito nets can save lives from the threat of malaria, my perspective changed transformed.
People who claim that Bono just wants more fame and credit obviously must not realize how invasive and hollow fame must be. After a single year in the spotlight, let alone 30 years as the most famous man on earth, his craving for public recognition was over-satiated.
All it takes is reading one interview to find out that he believes God is going to judge him in eternity for how he helps or neglects those in need. And that kind of motivation will light a fire under your ass.

Great interview BTW even though I heard for this member for the first time. Shame on me.

So you think someone will interview you without you being aware of that?
