Trying their wings
Next week, young people with physical disabilities and serious illnesses will experience a time of their life at the Day in the Sky event in Watsonville, CA. The Register-Pajaronian says: “The youths will be encouraged to take control of the crafts for brief periods, said Theron Wright, director of operations and event coordinator for Challenge Air. ‘We want to this to be a hands-on experience and a memory for life,’ said Wright, a physically challenged pilot. ‘This is about focusing on their abilities regardless of their challenges. Day in the Sky is designed to help these youths ask, 'What can I do?' I want them to think outside the box and expand their dreams and themselves.’” Travel for people with disablities blogger Scott Rains is quoted too. Maybe some of these young people will be inspired to pursue the ability to travel for all, despite the challenges one may face.
