He Lost His Arm But Is Still Climbing
Aron Ralston is an American man who is interested in mountain climbing.As a mountain climber, Aron is used to taking risks. This is one of the exciting things about doing dangerous sports. There were many times when Aron almost lost his life because of accidents. On April 26,2003, he found himself is in a very dangerous situation when climbing in Utah .
On that day，Aron's arm was caught and a 360-kilo Rock that fell on him when he was climbing by himself in the mountains .Because he couldn't free his arm, he stayed there for five days and hope that someone would find him. But when his water run out, he knew that he would have to do something to save his own life. He was not ready to die as that day.So he used his knife to cut off half his right arm. Then， with his left arm，he bandaged himself so that he wouldn't lose too much blood. After that,he climbed down the mountain to find help.
After losing his arm, he wrote a book called Between a Rock and a Hard Place. This means being in a difficult situation that you can't seem to get out of. In this book, Aaron tells of the importance of making good decisions, and of being in controll of one's life.His love for mountain climbing is so great that he kept on climbing mountains and even after this experience.
Do we have the same spirit as AronLet's think about it before we found ourselves“between a rock and a hard place,”and before we have to make a decision that could mean life or death.
