The world's fourth busiest airport, second largest in the United States, largest airport in Texas, the mega-hub for American Airlines and not to mention UPS, Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport is a testament of how fast the aviation world can grow within a short period of time.  This aviation city in itself is spanned across four areas in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area: Coppell, Euless, Grapevine, and Irving.  If this isn't enough, because of its location in the deep midwest, weather poses a challenge especially the spring and summer months for pilots, crew, and passengers alike.

Before it's time, both Dallas and Fort Worth were looking to build airports however, the twin cities did not want to join forces.  As a result, both Dallas-Love Field and Meacham Field came into existence.  During World War II, both American Airlines and Braniff Airways wanted to strike a deal with the city of Arlington, TX, but still the twin cities did not want to jet with this idea.  It wasn't until after the war, that Ft. Worth took over the joint plot and named it Amon Carter Field, to which all of the flights going in and out of Ft. Worth-Meachem Field were transferred into this new location in 1953.

Dallas-Love Field was becoming congested beyond means and in 1961 the FAA was extremely reluctant at the seems to invest funds for two separate Dallas and Ft. Worth airports.  The federal order came in 1974 that the two cities had to pick a site for this megaplex to be born and history was written.

Yesterday, this final product, Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport celebrated its 40th birthday and as a result, we welcome this aviation megaplex as our

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

Anything

Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand on your own two feet. 
Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. 
Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back.  
Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. 
Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything out of your control is teaching you how to let go.



Life is a lesson.  Passing the exam is up to us.
Take to this Monday with the lessons above.  Do your homework no matter how long it takes.  Passing the test will be one of the greatest achievements you will ever accomplish.

Flight For Sanity

FORD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Grand Rapids, Michigan
April, 2017

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…
