Heartwarming Bono Story

I was looking at these fan submitted photos and I found this one..what a nice story

"During the Democratic National Convention Bono performed at Symphony Hall. Former Gov. Dukakis took us back stage to meet the amazing him. Brian (left), who is blind, told Bono his music paints a picture for the blind and that he made sunglasses cool for blind people. This touched Bono and he gave Brian, my fiance, his sunglasses! They're now in a shrine in my apartment."

another one

"I broke a small rule and had my wife out on the airfield when U2 flew into Philly the 14th of May. It became a "problem" when she was seen standing at the bottom of the steps with "Michka Assayas Bono Book" in her hand. Security 'Neutralized' the situation & sent her away quickly .

I think Bono' might have known that they we're being held up by a 'fan' problem so when he came down the steps I greeted him with a kiss, welcomed him to Philadelphia & told him that was my wife was expecting. He waived her over and she couldn't get there fast enough. He hugged & talked to us like he was family for at least 5-10 min. He wrote a dedication to our future baby in my wife's book."

These are wonderful stories. Bono gives so much of himself...so much love...and that's a major reason we love him back!

I think it's the little things that really make me adore Bono. Yeah, his activist work is amazing but it's knowing that he also does little things like the above mentioned to make you realize that he is truly genuine.

this type of story is all the rebuttal those who say the band 'sold out' ethically need!

stars, you're not by yourself.

And by now, I don't care what anyone else thinks of that statement.

There is only one Bono in the Universe.
