    Bono simply rocks. And he puts his money where his mouth is. That makes him great in my book.

    Sorry, but most of us have more than one thing that we do in our life. Just because one is famous at one thing, does not negate one's other interests in life.[/quote]

    I love Bono and am going to see him November 16th and I can't wait.
    I am so jealous! I have been listening to U2 all of my life! Have extra fun for me too, would 'ya? I wish I could go. Gotta love Bono! Just the televised concerts are incredible - I would love to be there in person! I have seen him speak on some of the work he has done in third-world countries as well, he and his wife are truly incredible people!

    I couldn't agree more.

    VERY jealous of everybody who has seen or is seeing U2 in the near future. I've never been able to get tickets...

    Bono and his wife Ali Hewson (of Chernobyl Kids fame) are two fantastic humanitarian and politically astute people who highlight the plight of people who otherwise would never be heard. They confront the powerful decision makers with the consequences of both their actions and inactions. Bono is also a darn good singer. Sadly on nurses salary,I can only just afford concert tickets, but the phone bill following spending two days on hold trying to get my hands on aforementioned concerts has meant that I will have to content myself with listening to their CD's til I become Matron of St. Anywhere!! Happy listening folks.

    wow....didn't know there were so many bono worshipers in nursing...

    Nurses are awesome and the recognition from the public, famous or not is important to keep nursing in the foreground. We need to draw in new resources for nursing and Bono just put us in the field of vision for many who are still trying to decide what path to take towards the work-a-day world. The youth might be encouraged to look at nursing. Thank you to Bono for all his efforts on behalf of humanity.

    I don't "worship" the man. I praise his good acts/deeds. AND I do like the music.
