Persevere And Fly!

Written by Mary Holzrichter

Continued from page 1

After several more tries, on December 17, 1903, with a much improved bi-plane, they risked their lives and threw caution torepparttar wind. They ended up flyingrepparttar 124041 world's first powered airplane.

(Beginning at 10:35 a.m. that day, Orville flew it about 120 feet in about 12 seconds. About 12:00 p.m., Wilbur flew it 852 feet in 59 seconds)!

Johnny Moore, one of five men who helped them that morning dragrepparttar 124042 contraption acrossrepparttar 124043 frozen sand for positioning, ran torepparttar 124044 village of Kitty Hawk crying, "They done it! They done it! Damned if they ain't flew."

The birth of aviation!

At this time, Wilbur was 36 and Orville 32. Roughly 24 years had passed since their father gave them that toy!

I got to thinking as we walked aroundrepparttar 124045 monument (with 40 mph steady winds and pelting sand adding torepparttar 124046 mood!) of how they never gave up. The exhilaration they must have felt when they realized they'd done it! Their perseverance had paid off.

If you have a dream, work at it. If it doesn't turn out as expectedrepparttar 124047 first time, don't give up! Try again! Who wants to live and say somewhere downrepparttar 124048 road, "if only" or "what if?" Stick to what you want to accomplish. Don't ever give up!

"Nothing inrepparttar 124049 world can take repparttar 124050 place of persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not;repparttar 124051 world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

~~~ Calvin Coolidge
