Bono on Poverty

"Once you see not only the problem, but the solution, there's no escape. You see it, you can't look away from it. I want it to feel like an adventure, not a burden. I don't mean just for me, I mean for the movement. This is an extraordinary thing, an uplifting thing. This is not, 'Oh my God, all the poor starving Africans with flies around their faces.' They are very noble, royal people, full of easy laughter and very innovative. This is about us, too. It's about who are we? What are our values? Do we have any? It's exciting."

- Bono ­ Interview with Rolling Stone, November 2005

I came across your blog by chance and noticed you have a relative at OSU. That caught my attention, as my grandson graduated from there last year. So I paused at your blog.

I was surprised to see that there have been but three comments since you started, and you have deleted two of those. Have you wondered about that lack of response?

Happy New Year.

Hi Dana. Thanks for commenting. It is nice to know that someone is out there. Actually, I'm not all that surprised by the lack of response because I haven't told many people about my blog. One of the comments I deleted was my own, and the other was a bit of a commercial. I am having fun blogging though. Go Buckeyes!
