Belated Birthday Present!

"In times of war, you often hear leaders—Christian, Jewish, and Muslim—saying, ‘God is on our side.’ But that isn’t true. In war, God is on the side of refugees, widows, and orphans." (Greg Mortenson)

"Educate a boy, and your educate and individual. Educate a girl, and you educate a community." (African Proverb, Greg Mortenson)

"When you take the time to actually listen, with humility, to what people have to say, it's amazing what you can learn. Especially if the people who are doing the talking also happen to be children." (Greg Mortenson)

I am going to see Greg Mortenson at the Baltimore Speaker Series on Tuesday, April 27th! Salman bought us tickets for my birthday present...I couldn't be happier.
