As you can see, I’m fairly lame at making videos, but I couldn’t help myself this time. As crazy as Nik Wallenda’s Niagara-Falls-strolling stunt was this weekend, it thrilled me no end and, yes, inspired me, too.
Isn’t his feat exactly what life’s all about? … oh, and David Archuleta’s song, as well … to keep putting one foot in front of the other until you get where you need to go?
I heard some news commentators speculating that all those thousands of people turned up to watch (with many more thousand tuning in online and on TV) to see if he’d fall. I don’t think that’s why they were watching at all.
I’d like to think they were rooting for him… and ultimately for ourselves… to defy the odds and make it to the other side … of down.
