Did you have to pry your kids out of bed this morning (or yourself for that matter)? With students now beginning to return back to school following their winter holiday, the morning struggle is back on.
Keeping this in mind, you won’t believe what some kids are willing to go through every day to get an education.
After the bridge collapsed near Batu Busuk village in Sumatra, Indonesia, these kids didn’t stop going to school. Instead, they traverse a 30-foot long tight rope over the water each day, in addition to a 7 mile walk!
There are other children in Colombia who zipline 430 yards above the ground just to get to school every morning.
Around the world, children are quite literally struggling to get an education. The lengths that some of them are willing to go for the opportunity to learn are nothing short of remarkable.
These children are carefully making their way over planks on aqueducts. Would you be willing to do this to go to school? Would your kids?
But this is the reality for many children around the world that put in an unbelievable amount of effort for something so seemingly trivial, that many of us take for granted.
Would you ever be willing to do what these people do for an education? Have you or someone you know had to do something as outrageous as this to get somewhere important? We’d love to hear your story in the comment section below.
