Anything is Possible

The Wright Flyer holds immense significance in American history as it marks a monumental achievement in aviation. Constructed and flown by the Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur Wright, the Flyer made its historic flight on December 17, 1903, near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. This event is recognized as the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered aircraft in history.

There is a reason I keep this model of the Kitty Hawk Flyer hanging above my desk, which I look up at constantly through the day.

 I put this model together many years ago, and it was a difficult task.  I originally bought it at the NASA space museum in Washington, DC for my son to put together.  On the box, it said ‘easy assembly’, and thought he would learn something putting it together.  After bringing it home, realized it was for model experts only, and wasn’t ‘easy’ by any stretch of the imagination .  The kit was on the shelf for years, and eventually, I put it together over ten years ago.  The model is extremely  delicate and I have had to repair it many times from various accidents.

The Wright Flyer is a symbol of pioneering achievement that transformed the course of history, heralding the dawn of powered flight and leaving an indelible mark on American innovation and the world’s technological landscape.

Here is the reason I keep this model of the Kitty Hawk Flyer above my desk, especially on this Thanksgiving Day–  

It is a constant reminder we are lucky to live here and anything is possible!!
