There are millions of disabled people in our world who are marginalized in education and work. But they never broke down nor did their heart lose hope in life.
On Sunday, a disabled man made history by reaching the summit of Broad Peak, conquering the 14 highest mountains in the Himalayas – all of which are above 8,000m.
A South Korean climber Kim called Kim Hong-bin, who had all his fingers amputated after suffering severe frostbite while climbing in Alaska in 1991, reached the summit of Broad Peak on Sunday as part of an expedition organized by a small group, according to Koran media.
He had also managed to scale Mount Everest, the world’s tallest mountain which is located on the border of Nepal and China.
Despite his disability, Kim had successfully scaled the 26,400ft (8047m) high Broad Peak in the Himalayas mountains before he is thought to have fallen into a crevasse.
In my point of view, this barrier made him more determined to prove that he exists and can win competitions.
Indeed, the climb made the 57-year-old the first disabled person to scale all the world’s tallest mountains.
Kim and many others like him announced to the world that they exist through sports that carry all the meanings of life as well as the noblest messages of peace, tolerance, equality, and cooperation.
For this reason, Kim and those with special needs are also constantly the focus of curiosity seekers and totally marginalized in society.
