When Mountains Moved

New Picture
One only needs to pick up the news paper on a daily basis to realize that there are times when light at the end of the tunnel seems to be fading to a point of non-existence, when hope in man kind recedes, and faith in goodness dwindles amidst the turmoil that our country is going through.

However, there are people who, despite all the odds, continue to face adversity head on and struggle on a daily basis to make this world a better place. Todd Shea – an American former musician and current Executive Director of Comprehensive Disaster Response Services (CDRS) is amongst the few that responded to his innermost self by reaching out to the people of Chikar (c.85 miles from Islamabad) by helping bring medical facilities to the local communities. I was particularly touched by Todd’s story and no amount of words can describe the incredible journey this individual has embarked upon. Please take some time out to read the article below and view the video on the NYT.

  1. Just one person can make such a big difference. Truly inspirational.

  2. Oms, great minds think alike! Saw that you posted about this story as I was writing my post on it too. What an inspirational story. People like Shea and Greg Mortenson should be models to us all to provide what little we can to help the country.
