Can't forget...

I LOVE a good book. Specifically, I LOVE a book that I can read and remember days, weeks, months later. THIS is one of THOSE books! Three Cups of Tea is an amazing reminder of the POWER one man (or woman) can have in the world. I don't want to spoil it by telling too much and usually I'm not "in" to NonFiction as much, but this just blows my mind. This man, Greg Mortensen has done so much for the people of Eastern Asia and has truly changed my outlook. period. As I was watching the Olympic opening ceremony last week, I couldn't help but think of the teams from this area of the world with a kinder spirit. I WANT them to succeed. I want the whole human race to succeed, but I guess this was a reminder to make this part of the world a little less abstract. Definitely check it out, but be warned... It's going to make you want to do something:)

*disclaimer* this book has lots of foreign names/places, which can be a little distracting at first... power through it! It's totally worth it! Also, check out the link... you can watch videos and read a lot about the mission involved... I am so IN LOVE with this idea:)
