Life for an Arm

Friday, May 2nd, 2003 · 1 Comment

Aron Ralston has balls of steel. He is my new hero. Stranded under a 1,000-pound boulder, he saved his own life by amputing his own arm with a pocket knife. I can’t imagine. Then he scaled 75 feet down the cliff and walked into the emergency room on his own.

I’m sure he’ll soon be rich after he sells the movie rights. I’d rather have my arm, thank you very much. But poor guy. That’s some serious bravery. I’m sure it’s better than dying under a rock, though.
