Three Cups of Tea

We were fortunate last week to have tickets to hear Greg Mortenson speak at Macky. If you have somehow missed hearing about him or his work, here is some info. Warning: reading the book is MUCH BETTER than reading this blog entry! Three Cups of Tea. After attempting to climb K2, Greg was cared for by a village in Pakistan. When he was well enough to go back home he promised the villagers he would come back someday and build them a school. Thus began his mission: to promote peace, one school at a time. I believe his school-count is over 60 as I write this! Greg is an incredibly humble man and I highly recommend the book. And if you have a few pennies you don't need, check out Pennies for Peace
