I've been going through the story of my marriage to a Pakistani and my own health crisis but I'm going to take a break from it with this post. I've just finished reading the book 'Three Cups of Tea' by Greg Mortenson and Oliver Relin. I'm full of admiration for Mortenson who took on the enormous task of seeing that young children, especially girls, got an education in rural Northern Pakistan, Afghanistan. There is no better gift than that of knowledge! My oldest daughter, Aliyah, and I are going to start saving our loose change to make a donation to his charity. Knowledge can never be taken from you and with it you have the power to change your life and those around you! One of the girls that was among the first students of one of the schools he built is studying medicine to help the people she grew up with.

Here's a link to his site: go to the How to Help tab on the menu, it's got some helpful tips.

I urge you to read this book if you haven't already. It will move you!
