      Lessons From Mt Everest
      “A week after his return from Everest, he was totally paralyzed by the rare nerve disorder Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Artificially ventilated for 42 days, he spent six months in hospital before returning home. Though he was permanently disabled in both legs, he made a dramatic comeback to climbing the world’s great mountains, and returned once more to Everest in 2001.”
      As illustrated in the afore mentioned paragraphs, he succeed in leading the 1st team reaching the summit. This was absolutely great news to S’pore, this small island country. What’s more, he survived that serious syndrome although he is permanently disabled in his legs. This story made me pay higher tribute to him. David Lim is really a man, as Hemingway summarized in this novel “The Old Man and the Sea”, “A man can be destroyed but not defeated.”
