As fate would have it, an extraordinary pilot named Amelia Rose Earhart became the youngest woman in history to circumnavigate the globe in a single-engine aircraft. While there’s no relation to her namesake who captured headlines more than 79 years ago, it’s clear they both share a deep passion for flight and a remarkable sense of adventure.
Some of the items connected with her airplane trip around the world were on display at tonight's gathering. Although I was disappointed to learn she was no relation to the original Amelia Earhart, she still has quite the story. She also seems to be a delightful individual. This is her first public speaking engagement since the pandemic. I am glad it is here in Cheyenne.
Many thanks to all of the leadership at Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne. You are doing amazing things for the young people of our community. Keep up the good work.
Blessings and peace!
