In case you didn't know BONO has done more for AIDS than any one in the US. Celebrities are easy to criticize for lacking genuine motivations and sincerity but there's one person that has reached an international stage and that's BONO. Other than Mother Teresa no one else can claim genuine sincerity. Can any of us truly do a work of charity out of a pure heart? Bono certainly does not shy away from admitting that he is using his rock star status to get into important people’s faces about international problems. It's great to see some one become so homily for the poor. Bono made a statement once that the laws of the United States should be in line with what he believes are God’s laws: justice and equality. Last time I checked there were more like 10 laws and the concept of loving your neighbor. Bono said to do this the United States should tithe an additional one percent of the national budget towards international aid. Bono says he was amazed when he first got to this country and learned how much some churchgoers tithe. Up to ten percent of the family budget. We could all learn from each other if you have more give more. Thanks BONO for having a heart.
