Theme Thursday - History
On this day in history, Wilbur and Orville Wright made the first flight. Taking for the skies in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in their Wright Flyer, they were the first men to fly. Without wings on their backs or feathers on their arms, they flew, as man had so often dreamed of, wished for, and prayed for. To be immortal, to take flight, to soar. Man soars - not so high as an eagle, not so low as a penguin, but we soar on land. We evolved with legs for a reason - to walk. We evolved arms for a reason - to touch. We evolved brains for a reason - to think. To know. To learn. And to fly. Historic.
