Two people were making their way up the hills. Even though it was close to noon, their fingers were numb due to the cold. Tired and weary, but still they carried forth. And finally, they accomplished it!
It was today, 55 years back, that Tenzing and Hillary conquered Mount Everest, the tallest peak in the world. As usual, Google celebrates it.
Some thoughts: We all are trying to conquer our own personal goals. Our own personal Everest. Makes me remember of the Last Lecture by Randy Pausch - Achieving Childhood Dreams.
