U2 rock band leader, Bono, once wrote a poem for Billy Graham after visiting the retired evangelist in his home in the mountains of western North Carolina.
Bono, who considers himself a born-again Christian, gave Graham the poem titled, "Journey of Faith," in 2002. Now, the handwritten poem is on display at the Billy Graham Library's permanent collection in Charlotte.
"The library's Journey of Faith tells the story of how God used a dairy farmer from North Carolina to reach the world with the Gospel message, offering the free gift of peace with God to millions," reads a statement on Billy Graham's website. more >>

The sad story of former Baltimore Ravens' running back Ray Rice and his wife, Janay, has brought the epidemic of domestic violence in America to the national forefront.
On Valentine's Day weekend, Ray Rice and his then-fiancée were involved in an altercation in an Atlantic City elevator. Ray struck Janay, sending her into a railing and knocking her unconscious. He then dragged her out of the elevator doors, where hotel staff assumed she was drunk. Rice was suspended two games for the charge, but when the full video of the incident surfaced on September 8, the Ravens cut Rice and the NFL suspended him indefinitely. more >>
