If only my friends had told me Greg was from Montana....I would have read this book much sooner! If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it. For anyone who has said, why should I vote, what can one person do or for anyone who has wondered what can one person do; this book is for you. With little to no "how to" knowledge this one man set out to make a difference simply by relying on those who had helped him. The result has been an education for hundreds of children in the remote areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Even with national recognition Greg can be found in his basement in Bozeman, MT when he really needs to think through things inspite of having a "real" office after many years of being a grass roots operation.
By treating individuals of different cultures and faiths with a neutral, mutual respect, Greg Mortenson has literally built bridges, not to mention schools in some very remote places. If you are struggling with your "role" in society or your place in your community, read Three Cups of Tea for a bit of encouragement. Enjoy!
