My definition of wilderness is for one to challenge nature take the time not to judge it for its [beauty] but take the time to explore this wilderness.

There are a lot of things I would like to do but for some reason there are things in the way, things that I have to confront like standing up for myself, challenges, and fears. What I am trying to say is that I believe I need to help myself first in order to help others and that is something that I definitely have to work on as a person and “the things” I would like to do or want to make happen is try to make my community a better place and for people to have heal their life styles and appreciate the wilderness because I can say that on this trip we value the smallest things in life and believe it or not I am person who worries to much about the materialistic world and that is another thing I have to work on. Appreciate what we have. I would also like to encourage my school to offer a class that would actually teach us something that we would later utilize throughout our daily lives. What I mean more like a wilderness subject because this is so important and would teach us survival skills and appreciate life and what [it] has to bring us.
