I wanted to up and post this real quick.
I saw this a couple of weeks ago at my grandmother's house and think its pretty remarkable.
This fellow is the youngest person to fly solo around the world, and reputably the first black person. He completed his journey last month.
He is 23.
His story of flight, from his beginnings of thought, to calling manufacturers to donate airplane parts to the flight itself is remarkable,
and really speaks of a kind of perseverance,
all things being possible eh?
