Sir Edmund Hillary

This morning, New Zealanders  are honouring a modest and great man in their own ways and celebrating the life and adventures of our Kiwi hero. It’s amazing how he inspired so many people to make a difference that transformed their lives. His  values were and are timeless. We’ve learned among many other stories, he was responsible for reforestation of rhododendrun trees that used to grow prolifically on the Himalayan foothills before the wood was used by climbers for their campfires in subsequent decades.
