Before a person climbs Mount Everest, they must fill-out something called a “Body Disposal Form.” In this form, the climber says what they want done with their body if they die while they’re on the mountain.
There are three choices — leave it on the mountain, have it cremated, or have it sent back home.
Please read this Body Disposal Form. Even though it is for a mountain that is near Everest called Cho Oyu, it is similar to Everest’s form.
If you were going to climb Everest, which choice would you make and why?
Only answer this question if you feel comfortable writing about it! It’s okay not to answer this question. Also, if you want to answer the question but don’t want it published here, that’s okay, too. Just say that in your response and Mr. Ferlazzo will be the only person to read it.
