In Will Richardson’s Adrenalin Forest, what matters to him is faith. Adrenalin is a strange thing. It gives you the feeling of fear and terror, and yet it also gives you the feeling of bravery. When you are about to dive off of a soaring airplane ten thousand feet above the ground, you are scared. But you also just what to get the feeling of “I just jumped out of an airplane, I bet you count do that!” That is what Will experienced in the forests of New Zealand, He along with his family decided to try an extreme zip line. It was designed so that you climb up, not fall down. There are over sixty obstacles that you have to overcome. When he was about five stories high, he started to lose confidence. He was scared and feeling like he was old. Faith and adrenalin kept him pulling himself upward. While his kids had already finished he was getting words of encouragement from above. After thirty more minutes of grueling effort and indescribable pain he managed to pull himself to the top. Somethines the world thinks that there is nothing to change. When there is a problem in society, sometimes people forget that they can do there part. A single person can make a difference, with faith an a little adrenalin. As soon as the world starts to realize that anyone can make a difference, the world will be happier and more peaceful. When you are faced with a task that you think you will never complete, faith and adrenalin keep you moving forward.
