^^Yes! We can all learn from examples like that can't we? With so much greed in this world.

This made me cry.....and tomorrow night I will cheer for U2 louder then ever! They are truly one of a kind. And that boy, what a godsend, I'll say some prayers for him!!!

The band probably got just as much if not more from the encounter. Such an inspiring story.

He really is an inspiration! Wow! I'll pray for him. He really deserved to meet them and has my respect. I'd say that U2 has helped me get my mind off suicidal thoughts too. I don't have constant suicidal thoughts but they do tend to pop up sometimes, but very rarely. A very heartwarming story. Thank you for that!

You are very welcome!

I am glad so many of you guys loved that article as much as I did and found it so inspiring! It just shows how strong the bond is between the band and the fans! I know there was a divine intervention working all over this situtation for such unselfishness. The world needs more of these kind of stories! Thank God for U2...and for U2 fans!
