What is it like that first moment when you take the controls and take off into the sky? While many of us may never have this first hand experience, we can still vicariously join in, close our eyes and suddenly take flight...
People still talk of the miracle of Kitty Hawk
Why put all this emphasis on taking flight
Taking flight when it’s easier to walk,
Sometimes you wonder who is really right,
When I spread my arms upward to the sky,
I remember how dreams crashed and burned,
Leaving us to the inevitable question of why
Instead of examining what we have learned.
Without having feathers or hollow bones
We have conquered the sky on our own.
Despite all the doubter and naysayers
My life is lived on a wing and a prayer.
