Day 2: Courageous, Crazy, or Just Plain Stupid?
Having acquired such an appreciation for the explorers of the past, I would like to say thank you. Thank you for having the guts to do what you did. For it is because of your courage that we are able to enjoy all sorts of wonderful places all over the World. And, looking to the future, I hope that we can continue to have the type of courage that led us to where we are today. Although our adventures and explorations may look a bit different, I hope that we can continue to explore. For if we aren't exploring and advancing ourselves, are we even really living? Perhaps that is what motivated guys like Christopher Columbus. Maybe they felt that life without exploration wasn't really life at all. So we might as well take the risk, because if we aren't striving for something, we aren't really living…are we?
Fact of the day: There are 4 sides to a ship. Forward (front), Aft (back), port (left), and starboard (right). The trick is to remember that port, like the word left, has 4 letters. Once you remember that it is pretty easy to remember the rest.
