The story is really incredible, following one guy's dream and determination to build a school for a village he comes across in his failure to climb a mountain, to everything he has to go through to continue to build schools for similar villages across Pakistan and Afghanistan. I admire his endurance, determination, bravery, and I also admire his family (wife's)'s ability to cope with his long absences and fears for his life. The kind of difference he has made upon these people is incredible, and I find it so noble that he has devoted his life to this and continued to try so hard in the face of difficulty. I don't think I would have had the resilience to do so.
Also, I think his belief, that we can fight terrorism through education, is so insightful. Ignorance breeds hate, so his insistence upon providing balanced education is such a smart one.
Definitely worth a read. So inspirational.
