Dramatic Limits

“Everyone takes the limits of his own vision for the limits of the world.” - Arthur Schopenhauer

At the same viewing spot where the man fell to his death in Grand Canyon, passers-by and tourists were kept at a distance by this boundary of yellow police tape. Seemed incongruous in this beautiful setting, but tragedies still happen where they will.

They certainly didn't need another tragedy back-to-back from someone gawking. Really sad.

Some days I think this is God's way of cleaning out the shallow end of the gene pool!

Sad that this happened but if it weren't for the yellow tape it's certain someone would need to look over the ledge to see for themselves and perhaps have the same fate.
