I suspect this is the end of all giant rope swings. The liabilities have got to
be enormous, and with the way things go viral, I'm surprised more people
aren't getting killed.
if you go "thrill seeking". there are definitely risks. sky diving or

My adult son loves to snowboard in the backcountry. Everytime he goes, I worry a
little knowing the dangers involved. Yet, everyday he does something more
dangerous than snowboarding. He gets in a vehicle and drives, or rides with
others. I'm ok with someone saying they died doing what they loved, because
I've had too many family and friends die from cancer, heart disease, and
involved in car wrecks.
I am so sorry about your loss. What a comfort to know that you will see him
again one day. That's what has gotten me through the loss of loved ones. My
heart an prayers go out to you and your family.
My heart goes out to these parents. Beyond sad and tragic for them.
I've been there and felt that pain. Young people, young men especially, can
be so foolish in their fun-loving efforts to "try things". It's

there are hard moments... I believe that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ,

due to his choice. Thank you for your thoughtful words of warning to others.
Trust in the Lord. You're all in my prayers.
What a heart ache, I can only imagine their sorrow. I do know how much worry and
concern our kids can cause. I wish that there was any words that I could say,
all I can say is you have my heart. I feel the pane in yours.
