Did you watch 60 minutes last night about Greg Mortenson? I am devastated!
I read Three Cups of Tea which my son sent me and believed in Greg Mortenson. Here, I thought was finally a man who could altruistically do great things. President Obama gave $100,000 of his Nobel prize money to Mortenson's Central Asia Institute.
Now we find out that though he did some good things, he exaggerated or made up other things to make himself look good or sell his book.
Follow this link to the Daily Beast. How are we to know what to believe? I researched him before I sent my check. Nothing to show any sort of fraud. I couldn't very well go to Afghanistan to count how many schools he built. 60 Minutes did.
It's so very sad. He has done more harm with his lies than he can possibly know. I'm hoping he'll step up to the podium and explain himself. Maybe there's still hope. I still want to believe.
