Summiteers--Moving Mountains with Bereaved Boys
Renner, Hans-Georg
Online Submission
Summiteers are people who rush to the top. There is a mountain summit and a metaphorical summit inside us which we can climb. In the area of mountain summits, Reinhold Messner is surely the best known and most successful summiteer. He climbed, among other things, the highest peak on earth without supplemental oxygen. In the language of the country this peak is called "Forehead of the Sky". But now Reinhold Messner's life formula is in relation to his inner summit. His formula is called "Moving Mountains". Following his example we have to first move mountains, in our inner selves, in our beliefs and in our attitudes, if we want to climb up a challenging summit. (Contains 5 footnotes.)
