I STAND CORRECTED -

I did not blog about Three Cups of Tea, merely mentioned in my vacation post that I had read it.
The book is still with me, not literally, but within me as I continue to reflect on the amazing web of relationships, the sacrifices, and the wonderful schools that have been built in Afghanistan & Pakistan by Greg Mortenson.
If I won the lottery, his organization would get quite a share.
I am humbled by his calling and work. And I lift up his integrity and honesty. The world, our young persons need more of these qualities.
If you haven't yet read the book, by all means, do! It is very readable, keeps your interest, inspires and encourages, touches and humbles.

I liked the campaign pennies for peace (you can google it) ... that's something we can all do - long before we get a windfall - and I'm hoping that we could collect our pennies (5c here is the smallest coin) at church coffee for exactly this cause

the book is remarkable - and I'm really glad I got to read it

Yes, the Pennies for Peace was a great idea.
