I recently saw the trailer to the upcoming documentary, Invisible Highway.
I look forward to seeing the program as it is aligned with my deepest beliefs. My love of flying, my gratitude to the pioneers and visionaries that have made the amazing strides in flying efficiency and wonder. These men and women have steered my soul since I was a teen. It saddens me to think that most of us have become complacent, even openly critical about our air transportation system.
It is legitimate to feel frustrated if you have an expectation, however we also sadly miss the opportunity to be grateful. We lose when we don’t make that marked effort to appreciate how fortunate we truly are. The fact that just a century ago our world had no ability to connect at these speeds and locations. Today the masses have access to safer transportation and you no longer need to be in the elite or the daredevil class to fly. This gift is only due to man’s curiosity, courage, tenacity and belief in a dream. Let us continue to nurture these virtues. Let’s not lose out on the pleasure and fulfillment of gratitude.
Flying has come so far and it is moving faster and better at exponential rates.
Hang on for the ride. I know I am.
