I am a huge U2 fan and they are arguably the greatest band of the late 2oth and early 21st century. They were around when I was in high school and they are better than ever. Moreover, Bono has become a model of Christian activism and has been a great influence on American Evangelicals getting them involved in the HIV Aids crisis in Africa and the Make Poverty History campaign. In 2006 Bono was interviewed by Bill Hybels for the Willow Creek Leadership Summit which was simulcast in 125 churches to over 70,000 Evangelicals throughout North America.
Most days I have U2 playing as students enter my classes. It sets an excellent tone for teaching. Are there any other U2 fans among our readers?
