Hillary gone but here…

The greatest Kiwi ever died today – Sir Edmund Hillary… I once read this quote by him which seemed to capture what has made so many great Kiwis great.

I like to think that I am a very ordinary New Zealander, not terribly bright perhaps but determined and practical in what I do” – at the 50th anniversary

Down this path he went and became so much more. NZ’s Prime Minister said it well: “In reality, he was a colossus. He was an heroic figure who not only knocked off Everest but lived a life of determination, humility, and generosity.”

We come from a little land down under that would be so much smaller if not for Hillary.

    A great Man, and a great loss to not only New Zealand, but the world. Its a great testament to his influence that this news has been picked-up by every major news outlet!
