very nice article and interview. I am writing a paper on Mr. Mortenson for a literary group in Illinois that I belong to.
I was fortunate to see and hear Mr. Mortenson last spring and will do so again this April.
I hope that his book and his life remain a touchstone for many young people in these perilous times and an example of what can be achieved thru peaceful measures.
