My son, Antoine and I staggered to Uhuru peak in a blizzard with the expert help of our guide Masoud Buruti from Zara, and lots of encouragement from our fellow climbers. Antoine was only 9 years old at the time, and showed great courage and determination. We think he may have been the youngest person to have reached the summit. It is truly one of the most memorable experiences of my life, one in which you do go to the mountain to meet God.
