Tak­ing the Plunge

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Letters -

One of the rea­sons I love Reader’s Digest is be­cause you pick the best sto­ries, each one con­vey­ing a pos­i­tive mes­sage. ‘Ocean Chal­lenge’ (My Story, June) is no ex­cep­tion. Denise Strong’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to swim one kilo­me­tre in the ocean at the age of 63 is re­ally im­pres­sive. At times, we all long to per­form some­thing great but dif­fi­dence kills our spirit to achieve. Af­ter read­ing Denise’s story, at age 73, I too have found the con­fi­dence to take up some chal­leng­ing tasks. THARCIUS S FER­NANDO
