…we see enough already to be certain it will be magnificent. Only let us hurry and open the roads.”
The Wright Brothers National Memorial was surreal.
Many of us might have grown up being taught and taking for granted phrases such as “Orville and Wilbur Wright, Kitty Hawk, first airplane flight, etc”, but when you really think about it, what an inspirational thing! Standing in the spot where they made those first flights gives it life and meaning.
A quote from Bill Gates says it best: ““The Wright Brothers created the single greatest cultural force since the invention of writing. The airplane became the first World Wide Web, bringing people, languages, ideas, and values together.”
This was a highlight of our trip and something I hope to always remember.
Next up, the Outer Banks Brewing Station.
