Message for the youth
In the mountains, there are risks involved with each and every step. You must always be careful when climbing mountains, regardless of how high they are. Listen carefully to the more experienced climbers and do not climb without proper training. Education is very important to achieve your place in the world. The most important thing, though, is your health. As the saying goes, Health is Wealth.
