The book, Three Cups of Tea, is the story of Greg Mortenson, who believes in fighting terrorism with education. If you haven’t read this book yet, you should! It is a remarkable story about a man who sacrificed so much to provide an equal education for girls and boys in rural communities in Pakistan. Without Greg’s schools, even more poverty-stricken children would be educated in terrorists’ schools.
