BONO’s Point of View on Heartbreaking Global Differences:

“Ethiopia didn’t just blow my mind; it opened my mind. Anyway, on our last day at this orphanage a man handed me his baby and said, ‘Would you take my son with you?’ He knew, in Ireland, that his son would live, and that in Ethiopia, his son would die.”

Bono is an Irish singer, musician, and humanitarian. He is best known as the lead singer of the rock band U2. For our Global Issue though, we wanted to focus on Bono because of his activism and humanitarianism.
