In Memoriam of David Lama, Jess Roskelley, and Hansjörg Auer // What’s newsworthy here isn’t the tragedy that’s unfolded. What’s truly newsworthy is the caliber of athlete and human these young men were. The tragedy of their early passing is only compounded by the interest and drama surrounding this event. The mountains cast long shadows, but it’s important that we don’t dwell there. Rather, celebrate the accomplishments of the athletes who venture there while they live. Now is a time for reverence and quiet reflection reserved for the families and friends in the wake of their untimely passing.
