"You must really enjoy my company, not many people call askin' to see me again." Aviators covered his eyes, despite their indoor setting. Bleach blonde hair was littered with faded streaks of red, clearly done at home. Karkat simply shrugged, lifting a white ceramic cup to his parted lips, sighing blissfully at the steaming coffee warming him up. He held the cup close to him, the heated ceramic calming him down significantly.
"You're intriguing, I guess."
"Intriguing? That's new." Dave mused, leaning back in his chair

Not anything can measure it, not light nor miles nor time nor words like "depth" or "height" and I am, insect-like, a speck, so slight so blank so mute so pale within the white yet poised along the cusp of sound and sight some primal part, down deep where neurons bite where forces stir that blurred primeval night with white-hot wonder, blazing through the fight to see: the sea, the scene, each atom bright from here from me somehow so wide despite my jellied lenses, dulled by mortal rites yet lasering through all till all ignites. Some filament is cast that cords the kite,
One of civil air patrol's motto's in the cadet program is "rise to the challenge". When I first joined shortly after my 12th birthday I had NO idea what that meant. BUT over time I've learned SO much about myself and my abilities despite my age. Like most cadets...I want to use MY TIME in civil air patrol to inspire and lead...BUT--most of all I want to offer my service....to my friends , my family and my community....
Flyboys: A True Story of Courage, written by James Bradley, covers some of the events during World War II that took place in the western theater of the world. The book specifically focuses on one group of men known as Flyboys, who were tasked with bombing Chichi Jima in order to try to make it possible for the United States to take the island which was impossible to take by land. The pilots Jimmy Dye, Glenn Frazier, Floyd Hall, Marve Mershon, Dick Woelhof, Grady York, Warren Earl Vaughan, and the anonymous B-24 crewman who were gunned down and parachuted onto the island were taken as prisoners of war and treated and killed in horrific ways, so much so that the government did not even tell their families the truth about what happened to them.
“Here you go!” My thought process was broken by a warm voice, setting a two cups in front of me, one steaming, the other dripping with condensation. “Careful, it’s hot.” I grinned at him, his honey colored eyes meet my own; he winked before turning around to get back to cleaning. Eddie’s scowl was unavoidable at this point and I sighed, defeated.
“Is there anything you would like to drink?” Nyla asked. “Coffee please,” Leo said first. “Me too,” Isaac said. “Do you have any tea?” Ashlyn asked. “I would just like water please.” Hazel stated.
Aviator Charles Lindbergh became famous for making the first solo transatlantic airplane flight in 1927. Starting off by dropping out of college in his sophomore year, then working his

Whether it be by breaking records, or by discovering the unknown, we will always remember the people who shape our world and ideas.
Recently, I hiked around Pilot Knob with my father and a friend. Though the view of the surrounding land was gorgeous, my attention was captivated by the knob itself. Staring upward in awe, I marveled at the unique rock structure. One area was rough and cracked from centuries of tree roots and ice expanding cracks. Another was polished smooth and curved from the wind. Reflecting back to that hike I realize that I am Pilot Knob. Over time I have been shaped and worn by various events, choices, and individuals. Some have polished my character and identity smooth. Others have chipped away at the outside. Over time a beautiful formation has emerged. Today, my thoughts and identity are formed through three aspects of my character and life, my inquisitive
Although there are many differences between immigrants and American citizens, there are ways to overcome these differences to provide a peaceful coexistence such as a children's community center and food fairs. Putnam county has a beautiful area at the city docks to hold such food fairs. Putnam County is in dire need of a community center for our children. The children have no place to go after school or on the weekends. This causes our children to hang with the wrong crowds and get into trouble. Our children need a place to feel safe and secure. I propose to open Angel Wings Children Community Center a non profit Community Center for all children no matter of race, origin or nationality. Angel Wings will use grants and donations from private donors to sustain the center.

The rain splashed on my uniform as I ran down the street. I could hear the screams of my teammates as they were slaughtered, the screeches of the creatures hunting us, and the load roaring sounds of gunfire. I held the red flair tightly, knowing it was my only chance of survival. I neared the extraction point and could feel my breath catching in my throat. It was swarming with the weird creatures, their leathery grayish skin, long thin body and limbs, gigantic bat like wings and razor sharp dagger like claws. I saw the evac helicopter closing in and I could hear the pilot calling out over my radio. “ The landing zone Is too hot! We have to turn around!” And a last quiet, “ I’m sorry.”
Female Pioneer Aviation is a topic that is often discussed focusing on the pilots themselves, specifically Amelia Earhart and Bessie Coleman, rather than the impact they had on the world, even today, such as the advances made in the technology of planes after the radio failed Amelia, resulting in her unknown death, the inspiration many aspiring female and even some male pilots needed at the time of revolutions- the 1920’s to the 1960’s, and the importance of gender and racial equality. As Amelia Earhart is the most well known female pioneer aviator, the focus will be on people off the beaten track such as Nancy-Bird Walton, Jackie Cochran, and others. Focusing on Amelia first, her journey and impact will be discussed, then Jackie Cochran’s

One of my most prized possessions is a raggedy old flight jacket. I wore that jacket the last seven or eight years I flew in the army. The Velcro on the pockets is worn out, the zipper doesn't work so well, and it still smells faintly of JP-4. I probably logged 1500 of my 3500 hours of flight time wearing that jacket. For the 20+ years that I've been out of the military, on the first cold day of the fall my old friend calls to me from the closet. Most cold days, if I'm wearing a jacket, It's the one I'll be wearing.
