Everest

Everest principal

Last winter I was in Universal Islands of Adventure, when out of nowhere we were flooded by an immense storm. Most of the rides and attractions were closed, and throngs of people rushed to the parking lots holding broken umbrellas and plastic raincoats. The hundred bucks everybody had paid to spend the day at the park seemed of no concern, neither to the guests nor the rain. Family time cancelled on account of weather.

And we humans, full of hubris and blinded by ego as we are, still hold on to the belief that there is nothing above us. But then the storm hits. And if we’re not prepared for it, we might just freeze to death.
