Greg Mortensen is my hero

I strongly recommend you listen to this interview with Greg and a famous American journalist named Bill Moyers about the humanitarian work Greg and others are doing in Afghanistan building schools for girls.

I also strongly recommend you read Greg's books, THREE CUPS OF TEA and his most recent one, STONES INTO SCHOOLS: PROMOTING PEACE WITH BOOKS NOT BOMBS, IN

If only there were more people like Greg who had the drive to truly make the world a better place.

There is a transcript to help you understand what he has to say, but he has a very simple and easy-to-understand message about how peace can be brought to that troubled part of the world. The part of the interview that impressed me the most is the story about the "Men in Black" (Taliban) and the photo of them on the swings. Precious!

Please have a look!
