A while ago my cousin, Jon Ker, was involved in a climbing accident on Ben Nevis. I heard yesterday that he is due to receive (or has received?) an award for his bravery in going for help to rescue his friend.

I haven't seen Jon in years, but I'm still proud of what he did. I can't conceive of the strength and determination required to climb mountains and then get help when injured while a friend is in mortal danger.
