I watched an interview the other day and a woman said her problems were insurmountable.This struck me in two ways. First, who in this day and age says insurmountable? We may say impossible, unbeatable, no way, or can’t do it, but insurmountable? Secondly, what really in this world is insurmountable?
I think about all of the so-called insurmountable barriers that have been broken. Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth, was the symbol of insurmountable until Hillary reached the peak in 1953.
Since then, young and old, male and female, seeing and blind have reached the peak. How about Nick Vujicic who has no arms or legs surfing with Bethany Hamilton whose arm was bitten off by a shark? Did they feel their disabilities were insurmountable?
Felix Baumgartner jumped 128,000 feet above earth and landed safely, free-falling at 843 mph and breaking the sound barrier, the first person to do so outside of a vehicle. We have gone to the moon and explored space. In fact, there are currently over 35 people living in space right now. Read more: http://anniejenningspr.com/
