Solo across the Atlantic in 1932...

Even today, the idea of flying solo across the Atlantic in a single engine airplane is an awe inspiring idea (some may even say it's fear inspiring).  That Amelia Earhart accomplished the feat way back in 1932 speaks volumes of the strength of her pioneering spirit and offers us all a lesson or two for consideration.

Today, July 24, as she's honored by Google's search page with her own Google Graphic, we remember the 115th anniversary of her birth and more importantly, the hopes and dreams she can still inspire.  Amelia went against the odds, made tongues wag, and still today reminds us that we can fly as high as we can dream.

Happy birthday Amelia!
