It makes complete sense. I find it weird... when I saw them, I couldn't quite get my head round the fact that they were real - that these four men whose pictures are on my wall and whose music I listen to constantly were so near me. It makes the mind boggle.
I remember my friend and I just wandering the streets of London afterwards saying every minute 'oh my god, we just saw U2' in our own little trancelike state.

I can remember my heart jumping into my throat watching The Leap on LiveAid...I was young but I could see and understand that desire to somehow reach across the distance and share humanity...

And seeing things like this, just "get me".

I guess my only true moment of Bono (other than that same Wheaton roommate swiping the American Prayer soundboard for me) was the moment I tried on my orange Popmart Miklis . . .

Actually I looked really stupid and never wore them again

What annoys me is when people say "we" treat him as a god, but I don't, I mean, he's larger than life (and sexy as hell ), but then he's not, he's just a guy, and he's got such passion, and I dunno...he gives you faith and hope in what a person can do
Ok, shutting up now, enough gushing for one day

That's just the thing though...he IS just a guy, he's not a god, yet we see him doing amazing things for all of humankind.

Better to admire someone like Bono than one of these celebrity figures who seem to be propelled to 'Godlike status' for doing virtually nothing (other than inheriting Daddy's money or acting like a prima donna).
