Did You Know?


On May 25, 2001, Erik Weihenmayer became the only blind person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. In 2008 he climbed Carstensz Pyramid on the island of Papua New Guinea, completing the Seven Summits, the highest point on every continent. This accomplishment closed the circuit on a 13-year journey that had begun with his 1995 ascent of Denali. He is joined by a select company of only 150 mountaineers to have accomplished the feat.

A classic
3 April 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My drama teacher was in this movie the filter doesn't allow me to say his full name or his parts full name so I'll do my best (Steve and Kegan are the names) I watched this movie on TV and was amazed at how well done it was. I mean the story was AMAZING, (it reminds me of the pursuit of happiness which i also liked) the actors were great, and i swear that I feel differently about the world because of this!! to be happy for what you have (in this case sight). i recommend this movie to anyone with a heart!! all i wonder is how the trip down went! i would never climb everest in my life and i have OK vision but a blind person did it it makes you really wonder what was going through his mind!
