Three Cups of Tea

From a friend in Iowa.

With all the negatives present in our world today, I want to recommend to all of you a book of remarkable value. I am sure it is not the best written, but it certainly is about a life best lived. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Relin is a remarkable story of an extraordinary man who as we live our daily lives is accomplishing the impossible in the Middle East.

Wherever this man does his work, village after village of Muslims recognize his goodness and through him the potential for good of the United States. I would go on and on about him, but each of you deserves to meet him on your own and experience his unique goodness and ability to understand and relate to other humans, seemingly without an effort. It seems natural to him.

His work continues, and as his reputation grows, his support grows. Even the four minute shot on NBC, Brian Williams’ News on Friday, October 12, was likely the beginning of something new. Read the transcript and see for yourself. Read the book and recommend it to any and all.
