When I first got into U2 in the late 80s, I certainly never imagined the kind of figure Bono would become. Listen to this speech and see if you react the same way I did. With a sense that this man - this still-young man, lest us forget - is going to do a lot of good in the world in the, not years, but decades to come. That this man, when I am in my eighties and telling stories to my grandchildren, will be the historical figure they will be most eager to hear stories about. That he will be in the history books, and in the 21st century magazine recaps. That he will be influential.
