Last night, a determined Nik Wallenda walked a tightrope over The Jaws of Death, an active volcano. I was struck by his fearless pursuit of the art of balancing, his quest to overcome fear, and fervent faith. With razor-sharp confidence, Nik modeled for the millions of viewers what balance looks like in the face of challenge. His amazing walk influenced mine.
one step in front of the other,
evenly distributing weight
to remain upright and steady.
How many times,
have I lost my balance,
Finding it takes practice,
courage to walk
the tightrope of life
