By buddy Arnold we handicaps who attended the Retreat at inspiration Hills have had a Mountain top experience with god and nature. Where do i begin to place this experience on a Sheet of empty typing paper it is an impossible task to do. I Felt the Retreat was a much needed experience. Camping was nothing to this writer. To c be girl that hated Camp it was a revelation. It was a thrill for this writer to doubt turn into happiness at Camp. This was not Sun Side but i Felt the same love at this Retreat. The love i Felt lifted my Burden s away. Inspiration Hills was not Only fun and games. It was a weekend spent with god. We went on hikes with Jerry and Kieth and listened and studied nature with these two men. We found it to be filled with god. My favorite spot became the porch where i could look Down into the Hills at night and watch the stars and lights of Canton. I spent As much time As i could on that porch. A moved the whole Retreat Center but i hated the Steps with a passion. I wish people would Stop and think of the elderly and the people in wheelchairs and Stop making step s that Are so Steep. They Are a real Barrier. Build ramps not Steps has been my Battle cry. Ask the people who had to carry us Down those will Tell you the same. I wish the men who built the Retreat Center would have carried us just once Down those Steps the first night we got to know our comrades and the staff. We saw a movie and played games with Diane.
