Blind hiker travels the Appalachian Trail--Definite Positive Step

Trevor Thomas climbed The Appalachian Trail which peaks at the end of 2175 mile journey which is not an easy assignment for even for serious hikers and climbers. But Trevor Thomas truly defied the odds:

He was a third-of-a-mile from the rocky summit of Mount Katahdin, a granite giant that climbs skyward out of Maine’s 100 miles of wilderness.

“Just keep moving,” he said to himself. “Whatever you do, don’t stop.”

Hiking the entire Appalachian Trail is an accomplishment few people can claim. This year about 1,600 have tried and about 460 have finished.

Only one of them — Thomas — was blind.

For Thomas, stricken by a rare eye disease in 2004, the challenge offered something valuable — a chance to restore faith in himself.

In this world we are more fortunate to serve ourselves and the world .Still many among us just while away our time and energy without taking any positive definite steps in our life.

Human being has unimaginable potential.However to convert this potential energy into a substantial force is the work of one in million!!
