[July 02, 2014] The world was shocked to hear that Amelia Earhart and her navigator Frederick Noonan were reported missing in the Pacific Ocean on this date in 1937. Earhart completed a number of aviation firsts, winning fame and money along the way in the 1920s and 30s. She was well liked and personally driven to audacity.
Sadly, she ditched her plane after running out of fuel and very likely perished at sea.1 While today we recognize her tragic death, it is also a time to remember courage when there is such a shortage of it in the world.
