To fly

A young man finds himself among the clouds in a bungee-aided jump at the Kane County Fair in St. Charles, Illinois. The apparatus allowed four jumpers to launch themselves into the air simultaneously.

The final day of the fair saw clear skies after several days of rain, and a large crowd took advantage of the break in the weather.

Note on my last post: I intended the picture of the fire-eater to be a light-hearted look at Monday as a work day and the relative ease most of us have in our occupation. A commenter mentioned his job as a New York City firefighter, whose job entails being occasionally eaten by fire. I’m just wondering: Are there any other tough jobs represented by you visitors to Points of Light? I’d like to know.
