Bono's Religious Drive
Everyone knows Bono as the rock star from the bank U2 and one who has played a huge role in fighting world poverty. What a lot of people don't know is how his Christian faith has helped him achieve these goals of giving aid. Getreligion.com wrote an article titled "Good old story about Bono history" that highlights Bono's faith and how he feels he had an advantage in being able to communicate with people on all ends of the spectrum- especially in Washington D.C. He explained that one of the advantages to his fame was that he was given the ultimate opportunity to reach out to the world and have an impact, and so it began.
I found this article very enlightening and it made me want to go out and help the world! Really though, I think Bono is one of the few people who actually uses his fame in a good way, and that is to fight poverty around the world. The fact that his Christian faith helped him do that is all the better because a belief system is really an empowering tool.
