    Greg Mortenson told a great story, a story full of hope and possibility, and he may have embellished while telling that story. Could we possibly be so disappointed about the deeds that Greg has done? We live in a world full of people who lie, cheat, and steal every day and who's deed are far worse than their false words. And yet, we chose to crucify a man who is making a positive influence on the world. Wow. Every expert, journalist, and news anchor that is supporting this story should be ashamed. What have you done today to change the world? Congratulations America. Your fear mongering and distrust of everyone is tearing you apart.
