The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports U2 singer Bono was in Atlanta to receive the Martin Luther King Center’s ‘Salute to Greatness’ award on Saturday. Bono said King’s message of peace and justice influenced him greatly as a teenager, while Northern Ireland was engulfed in violence. “He wasn’t just talking about the American dream,” Bono said. “It was a much bigger idea, actually, an idea that could fit an African dream, an Irish dream. And it certainly wasn’t a daydream. It was a call to action.”
