I know this happened at the first of the school year, but I was going to reflect on this year's convocation with Greg Mortenson. Mortenson was a very inspirational speaker who reflected on his past life and his recent best selling book "Three Cups of Tea." In 1993 Greg Mortenson was thesurvivor of a failed attempt to ascend K2. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of an impoverished Pakistani village, Mortenson promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time. Greg Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.
Mortenson also provided goals and strategies to be successful in school, business, and life in general. It was a very informative and inspiring speech that I will remember for the rest of my life.
