Greg's Similarities to his Father
The quote I picked was taken from Chapter 4; titled "Self-Storage." The chapter summarizes the life Greg and his family had while he was growing up. His father, Dempsey, reminded me very much of his son and the quote I chose reflects that. Dempsey visits Tanzania and was immediately inspired into helping them by building a hospital. On page 36, it states "Dempsey threw every molecule of himself into the great achievement of his life--raising money for and founding Tanzania's first teaching hospital, the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical center." It's a great example of showing why Greg is the way he is. He spent an enormous amount of time training to climb K2 and he is putting an equal amount of effort into building the school for the children of Korphe.
