Response to Rescuers Find Body After 12 Minute Search in Big Stream Gorge in New York


he was my friend since i was 8 or 9 years old. it truly is sad. he was such a good person. i hope everyone takes notice that no matter how ambitious our "adventure" goals (although his ambitions on this walk were not extraordinary--it was simply a nice way to spend an evening with friends, as far as i know), the pain and sadness caused by a death as a result of a hiking accident (or the like) is not worth what would be gained by the successful completion of the adventure. i know, now, after having to grieve with his parents, friends and family after this horrific tragedy.
