Quitting is not an option. It is a phrase we hear a lot, but do we really mean it? And when push comes to shove, would you quit? Is there anything that would stop you?
Today I went to my first Air Show. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I had a super-excited husband accompanying me and it was a great day out! One of the aerial displays was from a man named Dan Buchanan. Dan moved from New York to Lake Tahoe and was in the process of pursuing his private pilots license in 1981, when he had a hang glider accident as a result of flying in weather that he confesses he shouldn’t have been flying in. Dan was paralyzed and lost the use of his legs. Despite this, he was back flying six months later. He continues to share the thrill of flight with millions of people around the world during his annual 25+ city Air show tour, driving 45,000+ miles each summer.
As I watched him zipping around in his hang glider, I had no clue that he was without the use of his legs. When I met him after his performance, I was struck by the passion for his sport that emanated from him.
So I ask you again…
