To My Kids: Yes, the Worst Can Happen. Be Careful Out There
By Michael Lanza
Hi Nate and Alex,
There was a tragic story in the news recently of yet another accomplished young climber who’s now dead. He actually survived an avalanche that killed his girlfriend while they were backcountry skiing in Montana, but he could not endure the avalanche of grief and pain that followed. He took his own life the next day. He was 27, his girlfriend was 23. They were both way too young. It’s unspeakably awful.
This story will probably fly off your radar soon, I know. But I can’t avoid thinking about that terrible double tragedy.
