Recently I gave up on two books: Three Cups of Tea by Mortenson and The Water and the Blood by Nancy Turner, author of These Is My Words.
I really enjoyed the beginning of Three Cups of Tea. The story of how he built that first school was very interesting. But, as the timeline got closer to September 11th, I was just dreading the lectures that were about to come.
I was working in the Senate that day; we evacuated to rumors that a plane was coming for us. I didn’t need a lecture on American politics from Mortenson.
