A Far Cry from My Previous Post
I have always admired Bono for his determination and doggedness to convince world leaders to ramp up their efforts to combat a host of problems in Africa, with hunger, AIDS, and debt relief being his biggest crusades. I'm not sure how I feel about the debt relief aspect of his work, but I do support his work on behalf of ending hunger and combatting AIDS and have a great appreciation for the fact that he doesn't have any intention of giving up. Here is a man who wants for nothing, whose family wants for nothing, and who could easily say, "Well, I'm rich and successful, and until this involves me I won't get involved." But he doesn't say that -- and he doesn't give up, as this video clip from CNN demonstrates (and I was glad to see, despite CNN's best efforts to slide it by the viewer, that the problem with this isn't the United States, who has actually done more than they promised).
