This makes so much sense to me the video above and the post below, when tragedy is around us, we bind together, help each other, our humanity is expressed freely.
1- There is no competition; everyone is rooting for you to get to the top.
2- Everyone is a student and a teacher; we all have something to offer.
3- No one asks your age, color, gender, religion; just climb.
4- If your legs get tired, someone will hold you up to rest.
5- If you lose footing, many will try to show you the way.
6- Regardless of how you get back down, someone will high five you.
7- There’s always someone to help get your gears on, and put them away.
8- Don’t rush, there’s more time.
9- If people believe in you, you will believe in yourself, you will climb further.
10- When you get tired, a cold drink and a nap is around the corner.
And the bonus lesson:
11- Even if you fall, there is a harness holding you and you will be safe.
