Why do people die in the wilderness?
They die of shame.
A billionaire business mogul depicted by Anthony Hopkins in the movie “The Edge” made this profound observation to his companions following a small plane crash into the northern mountains. He told his fearful co-hearts: “People die in the wilderness from shame. They are ashamed to be lost, afraid and confused. They wonder: how did I get here? Why can’t I find my way? So they fail to do the one thing that can save them. They fail to think.”
