After reading part one in Endurance I started thinking about my life as a whole. People take waking up in a warm comfy home for grated today and I myself am guilty of this. We have food to eat when we please, water to drink and shelter from harsh conditions. These men have endured the impossible and we complain if the air condition is to low or too high. They have volunteered for something that is unknown and impossible to accomplish. What really impresses me so far is how motivated and determined they are to accomplish this. I know for sure if I was part of that crew, I would not have made it as far as they are getting. Most people today would not dare to take on a mission as harsh and life threatening as these men had. I still can't even begin to image how hard it was to be out there not knowing if you were going to live or die. I can't wait to read more and learn what other obstacles they had encountered.
