Born to Fly – Pilot Jordan

In a previous post (7-27-12), I stated, one of the most joyous things I have done in life was start an annual scholarship for my high school alma mater, Sumner Academy.  I ran it in 2006 and 2007. The first year Jordan was one of the three recipients and it has been a pleasure to mentor him, see him obtain his bachelor’s degree and now live his dream of being an airline pilot!!!  Today, he was featured on Charlotte’s radio station WGIV (103.3) during their Inspirational Corner (Shake It Up) about being a young African American pilot.

I loved when you said “there was never a Plan B!  Plan B is to make Plan A work!!!”  This is so powerful and why you are living out your dreams today!  Congratulations and I’m so proud of you!  Keep doing your thing!


I am going skydiving soon in honor of steave! Our joke has always been, ‘boom is bad’ but today’s boom is cause for a homegoing celebration. I’m so blessed and thankful I had the chance to fly to Cali on a whim recently. Life is too short so we gotta live it to the fullest!  No Regrets!

The heart of the fightGLOBESITY movement is captured by Mahatma Gandhi’s quote, You must be the change you wish to see in the world. Hence, the fG logo demonstrates a person in a starting position – jumping, moving forward – ready to start now. The image rests within an unfinished globe. The open circle represents the success of movement: reducing obesity worldwide. Finally, the open hands of the image symbolizes the importance of reaching back to pull someone else forward into the movement, hence, Let’s Start Now!
