I saw the Amazing and Flying Wallenda Family when I was a child. My parents were inspired by their daredevil bravery and they shared that with their 3 sons. Every year when Karl Wallenda would bring his family, The Flying Wallendas to town, we would watch with mouths open, just wondering how death defying the next feat would be. The legacy continues as the descendant travels 1800 Feet on a 2-inch wire - incredible.

Watch these amazing videos of Nik Wallenda, the great-grandson of the great Karl Wallenda, walk across Niagara Falls from the United States to Canada. He talked as he walked across the wire, praising and thanking his Lord and Savior.

Nik's great grandfather Karl died in Puerto Rico in a 10-story fall at the Condado Hotel.

Thank God, Nik Wallenda survived the swirling winds, noise, and mist of Niagara Falls. The human spirit still thrives. His quote, "to inspire human beings around the world."
