so inspired

"promoting peace is based in hope. to overcome ignorance, we need courage, faith and persistence"

I have been a fan of Greg Mortenson since reading Three Cups of Tea and have been looking forward to his forum address for months. He didn't disappoint. It was wonderful to have him come to BYU and share a message with us.

It is easy to get discouraged in our endeavors, especially in international development. But Greg shows through his words and actions that change is possible, if we trust the people we work with enough to empower them.
