Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart was born on July 24, 1897. She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Her motivation to fly started when she was just 10 years old. It was the first plane that she saw that got her into flying, but the plans she saw 10 years later during a stunt-flying exhibition (The Family of Amelia Earhart, 2021). She faced many challenges, including prejudice and financial struggles, but she didn’t let anything stop her from her dreams.

She also had other achievements that some may not have known about. Amelia was a supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment (The Family of Amelia Earhart, 2021). She also was a best-selling author. Amelia took her flying experiences and achievements and wrote about them. She helped to form an organization, Ninety-Nines, for female pilots. During a time in life when women weren’t thought of very highly, she conquered many stereotypes and led the way for other females.

The ambitious Amelia didn’t wan to stop at being the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She wanted to fly around the world. In 1937 she set off for her flight, but ended up disappearing (The Family of Amelia Earhart, 2021). She was never found even after a large search had been conducted. To this day, her disappearance is a mystery.

Letter to my Best Friend

Dear Best Friend,

I started this one with dear best friend, even though you are my wife. You started as my friend. We started getting to know each other because our sons were in kindergarten and became best friends. Of course us moms needed to arrange a play date so they could get together and have fun playing together.

You were easy to talk to. We just chatted and got to know each other while the kids played at the playground. We laughed and just enjoyed adult conversation while keeping an eye on the kids. They played, all three of them, just enjoying being kids.

This was the start of something that later on would become more. We had no clue at the time there was to ever be more. Little by little we both started opening up a little more to each other and finding a best friend in one another. Over the years, I was to learn just how much of a best friend you were going to be to me. Over the years, I found out that people I called friends were actually no friend of mine at all. You have been there through all of that.

I am thankful you are my best friend. I am thankful I get to talk to you. I am thankful I get to wake up each morning beside you and go to bed each night with you in my arms. I am lucky to have someone in my life who wants to see me grow and who supports me in anything I want to try and do. I am lucky to have someone who wants to know and love every part of me. I am thankful to you, my wife, that started as my best friend.

Love,

Your Best Friend
