'Follow Your Ideals' Bono told Harvard students, when he addressed an audience of 5,000 last month.

Speaking for nearly thirty minutes on 'the struggles and oppression of 'the third of the world that lives on less than a dollar a day.' Bono asked his listeners, 'Is America still a great idea as well as a great country?'

The invitation to speak at Harvard came from economist Jeffrey Sachs, director of Harvard's Center for International Development, who has worked
with Bono on the campaign to cancel the unpayable debts of the worlds poorest countries.
