National Parks. Hiking. Sports.
Rarely has Gandhi's quote: "The law of love knows no bounds of space or time," rang so true as the ending to the ordeal in Thailand which may not have happened without the assistance of 14-year-old Adul Sam-on, who was among the soccer team members trapped in the cave for 18 days. Adul's fluency in 5 languages aided in the translation of critical instructions shared by the British divers, ultimately leading the group of 13 to freedom-a fitting conclusion to the most courageous of situations for a boy who heretofore was considered "stateless" - the result of his parents "slipping" him into Thailand for a better life - who is now recognized for what he always was: A citizen of the world.
