He even has a blog!

I was wondering what your feelings were about the book so far, or about any thoughts you have from looking at the links above.

I love this book because I think that Greg is a wonderful person.When Greg helped and taught a lot at all these children, he wasn't thinking about himself so Greg was thinking to helped to everybody.

The "Three Cups of Tea" story is about the how one person can change to our living environment. Even though how hard situation are coming to you and your family. Greg Mortenson to when he had first visited that 3rd world country in Asia somewhere. Maybe he didn't realize, but what he went through and seen his missions pushed him to strongly. He wants to do that mission for young children.

Two things that I love to see are people learning and mountains. The pictures from Three Cups of Tea are full of people who love to learn and majestic mountains, just like we have here in Colorado.

It makes me smile to read the things that our students write. Your thoughts are going out to the world when you write in a forum such as this. I will check in often to see your work!

Looking at the picture of the school that Greg is helping so hard to build in Korpe shows that Greg wants the kids in the town of Korpe to reach for high goals.It shows this in the picture because when the children look behind there school they will see the the hight mountian top of K2 and that will make them motivated to reach for there highest goals in there life. Thanks Greg

This was a wonderful book. I'm glad we read it in book club. I wish more people would think of others and support education, especially for women.

Antonio said...

That sounds like a great story,I havent read it yet but I think one of the best rights for children in all the world is to get a education and what he did is a great step for those communities far away from civilization. People can expand their knowledge.

Soon Hyung said...

This is a fasctionating book. In particular, the free service and his wanting to support some children in the undeveloped 3rd world is very impressive and inspired. I strongly recommend this book to those who haven't yet read this.
