Sir Paul David Hewson was at Keio's Mita Campus today, picking up an honorary doctorate for his humanitarian work. He is in town for the TICAD IV conference on African development.
I caught only a few minutes of his talk, but he talked about the new ONE Campaign and about bringing it to Japan. He singled out Tadao Ando and a couple of others by name as artists with a conscience whom he admires. He also talked about how wonderful the young Japanese people are, humble and wanting to help the world (he must have been talking to SFC students :-).
Bono is smart, dedicated, inspired, and inspiring. With leadership like him, and enough inspired young people, we can make the world a better place.
