EVERYONE HAS HIS OWN ATLANTICS TO FLY
Amelia~Earhart spent a lifetime of°adventure and heroic achievement until her airplane disappeared somewhere near the Howland Islands in the Pacific. She gained fame by; being the first woman to fly across the Atlantic.
In the Aug 1932 issue of American Magazine, she wrote: 'My particular inner desire to fly the Atlantic alone was nothing new with me. I had flown Atlantics before. Everyone has his own Atlantics to fly. Whatever you want very much-to do, against the apposition of tradition, neighborhood opinion, and so called 'common sense' -that is an Atlantic."
