AMELIA EARHART’S DISAPPEARANCE.

Monday, July 2nd: Amelia, Amelia … where are you Amelia? Today marks 75 years from AMELIA EARHART’S DISAPPEARANCE. In 1937, Amelia Earhart disappeared on her around-the-world trip, over the Pacific.

According to Chase’s Calendar of Events, “Having completed 22,000 miles of her journey, Earhart, accompanied by navigator Fred Noonan, took off on this date from Lae, New Guinea, for the final 7,000 miles over the Pacific. About 800 miles into their flight to tinyHowlandIsland, radio contact was lost with her craft. Despite a massive search by the US Navy and US Coast Guard, Earhart, Noonon and their plan were never found.”

Aviation, and the proliferation of women pilots, has advanced tremendously over the past 75 years. Technology is light years ahead of what Amelia had on her journey. Yet, with all our advances, lives are still lost through errors in flight and mechanical failure. Celebrate life by honoring Amelia’s courage on this anniversary of her disappearance. Today, take to a moment to reflect on Amelia Earhart and others, who lost their lives while living a life outside of the norm, yet who lived their lives being true to themselves. What can we do in our lives today to stand true, strong and courageous, despite the dangers and our fears?
