Hi All,
I have to share with you a very special book, one which you will be so glad
you read.  It is "Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Fight
Terrorism...One School at a Time," by Greg Mortenson and David Relin.  It is
a new NF title for adults.

Mortenson has been building schools (without any US gov't assistance) in
Pakistan and Afghanistan for many years.  He is a true hero and there is
speculation that he may receive the Nobel Peace Prize. It is the most
inspiring book I've read in 10 years, and I read a lot of books, like most
of us do. 

This is the website for the Central Asia Institute which Mortenson heads,

but you must read the book to fully understand this noble man's sacrifices
and service to promote the true American spirit that most of world never
