Sir Edmund Hillary…..

I’m sad to announce that the world lost one of its great sporting icons yesterday with the passing of Sir Edmund Hillary. He was 88. This guy was a stud!  Not only was the first person to BAG Mt. Everest back in 1953, his first words upon reaching the summit were,edmund-hillary.jpg “Well, we knocked the bastard off.”  Being into Mountain climbing myself, alot of people might be able to say they’ve accomplished something, but there will never be another first.  In anything you do in life, Trailblazing a new path would be the hardest.  In the Christian walk, going  where no one has ever gone before, daring to dream God-sized dreams, doing what most would deem impossible.  What has God called you, to be the first to accomplish??

    What a sad day! That man lived some kind of life, huh? Did you watch the second season of Everest on the Discovery channel? – Aaron
