Facts & Observations by Jonathan Sprout
Amelia Earhart, American Aviator, is famous for her flights across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and her attempt to fly around the world. She often used her fame to speak out against war and for women's rights.
One of the most intriguing mysteries of the twentieth century is: What happened to Amelia Earhart? In June 1937, she left Miami, Florida, on an around-the-world flight attempt. On July 2, her plane vanished in the South Pacific. The world waited with fascination as search teams from the United States and Japan converged on the scene. But not she, her navigator, or the plane was ever found.
“Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.” – Amelia Earhart
