Stones into Schools

by Greg Mortenson May 14, 2010
Stones into Schools

Mortenson’s first book “three cups of tea” (Viking, 2006) told a story of one man’s (Mortenson) attempt to climb the world’s second highest mountain and how his failure to do so culminated in an unlikely friendship with, and commitment to, a remote Muslim tribe in a harsh mountainous village in the Taliban Territory in Pakistan. This tribe, despite their own material needs, rescued and nursed Mortenson back to health. Struck by their generosity, three cups of tea is as much about discovering humanity in remote places as it is a story of how Mortenson was inspired to find the funds to build a school for young girls, quite literally against all odds. “Stones into Schools” follows the humble beginnings of three cups of tea and Mortenson’s journey into Afghanistan. It is largely an account of how the seemingly impossible has been overcome, which is no doubt partially due to Mortenson’s own ravenous adventurous nature.

The communities he chooses to help are the most challenging, the most remote and the most dangerous, perhaps because it is these communities that will never be reached, even with international aid. It is also these groups that are the most at risk of being recruited by extremist political groups. While this book may not be as inspirational as the first (after all, we already know the gist of the story) it is still worth every word and every bit of paper it is printed on. A must read.

Stäv att inte handla suger gel ska du leta upp Aloe Vera gel som kommer från Aloe barbadensis. Den används för att göra en effektiv gel.

This is well established that dietary coconut oil reduces our require for vitamin E, but I think its antioxidant role will be more general than that, and that it has both immediate and indirect antioxidant activities.

The case of Candida albicans is truly a perfect example for the controversial approaches of our western 'college' medicine versus the integrative approach of modern Naturopathic Medicine.
