Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson

This is the awesome story of one man's mission to promote peace, one school at a time. After the author's attempt to climb a mountain in Pakistan, he realized the need to educate children, especially girls, in the remote regions of Pakistan. By providing a non-biased education, rather than having no alternative for these kids but the extremist/terrorist run schools, he feels strongly that this is the only way we can win the war against terrorism. This man is truly an inspiration. Here are some related links, if you are interested in learning more about this worthy cause.

I encourage you to read this book. It will give you a whole new perspective on the "war on terror".
