“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.” – Fred Rogers
Mr. Rogers always seems to get it right. With all of our access to news and information, it’s not hard to see the need. I’d like to learn how to better respond. I’m a child life specialist in Houston, TX. I’ve had the privilege of traveling to third world countries, drilling for water, spending time with children who are often labeled fatherless, but who we know have a Father who deeply loves them. These things are no longer out of my comfort zone – but climbing a mountain is. I’ve heard the numbers associated with the water crisis; how far people walk for safe (and often, unsafe) water, the weight of the items they carry, how dangerous the walk can be, especially for women and children. But I’m a slow learner, and I’m hopeful that physically experiencing a small part of their daily struggle will help root an understanding deep in me in a way that just hearing about the water crisis never could. I’m excited for the beauty, the time outside, to do something hard, a few days with a great team, and hopefully, the chance to see the world with a new perspective – and from 14,000 ft.
