Hillary Did It!


You will never believe what Hillary did! It is unprecedented and well shocking.

There are obstacles to be conquered and mountains to climb and someone has to be the first to do it no matter the cost.

Hillary is self described as a “small and rather lonely child.”

But I am not writing about Hillary Clinton. This is about Sir Edmund Hillary.  I will come back to him, but first I wanted to ask you a question.  Why are we so quick to click on posts about Clinton, Trump, or other celebrities? Why do we fall for clickbait (I am glad you did this time)?

Could we be looking for the latest gossip? Gossip is still gossip even in written form. There are too many false stories on the web from false news sources. Please, please, please be careful with what you open and even more so with what you spread. Paul would remind us to speak,  ” . . .  only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” (Eph 4:29).

Back to Sir Edmund Hillary:

Shy and studious Hillary buried himself in books but grew to be quite the athlete.  His love of mountains and snow lead him to the sport of mountain climbing and at age 34, Hillary, along with Tenzing Norgay became the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

The Sherpa people of Himalayan’s became important in Hillary’s life. Through the Hillary Trust, he built schools, hospitals, and transportation hubs in Nepal. Because of his philanthropy[y and accomplishments, Hillary was named an honorary citizen of Nepal in 2003, 50 years after reaching the summit and 5 years before his death.

  1. The Sherpa people are a amazing lot. I spent some time with some while a Marine-some Sherpa mountain troops which were unequaled in their skill and abilities. They were also fiercely dedicated Buddhists and some of the kindest happiest people you’d every meet. I had some very insightful conversations with a few I have become life long friends with. I don’t necessarily agree with your politics Scott, -at least not where Trump is concerned , otherwise we may be more alike than we think..lol But I like this post,it was a good read. Thanks!

    • We can learn so much from so many different cultures, ideologies, and people. We simply have to be friendly and engage in conversation. Even when we disagree with those ideologies or religions, we can still treat each other respectfully and in love.

      Thanks for your openness.
