A BLOGGING IN FORMATION special post!

This month, Americans celebrate a major national holiday, second only to Christmas. It is called, “Thanksgiving,” and is a day for giving thanks to God for all of our blessings.

Our tradition is filled with turkey & gravy, pumpkin pie & ice cream, and the San Francisco 49ers  kicking the Seattle Seahawks’ ar$$es (sorry, Karlene Petitt!)

But, again, the true meaning behind Thanksgiving is to pause and count our blessings…

So, we ask you, What are YOUR blessings?

There is an old saying that goes, “I used to complain that I had no shoes, until I met someone who had no feet.” No matter who we are, there are others that have it better than us . . . and yet others who have it far, far worse.

Even so, those people we consider less-advantaged can take us completely by surprise, and rise up by their own bootstraps to accomplish far more than what even we though possible of our own selves.

MeJessDillon! Lo

Epic encounter! The Cap’ns Aux & Dillon meet the amazing Jessica!

Enter Jessica Cox.

Jessica is my all-time greatest pilot-hero. Why? For starters, she’s the world’s FIRST and ONLY licensed pilot . . . with NO arms! Yep, you heard me right! Oh, yeah, and by the way, she also happens to be a BLACK BELT in two different forms of Tae Kwon Do!

Jessica is an incredible inspiration, not only to those who have physical or other challenges, but also to able-bodied (if far less ambitious) folks such as ourselves.

jessica-cox copyOften, when we finally get to meet our heroic icon, we are shocked to find that they are just ordinary folks like you and me.

And Jessica is no exception!

So, let’s meet Jessica!

Check out this cute video Jessica just put out, recreating the story of how she decided to steal her dad’s TV set . . . with no hands, mind you!

Cap’n Dillon & Jessica whoop it up at the KCZG Copperstate Fly-in! Dillon is also my inspiration, as he never lets his challenges with Cerebral Palsy keep him from his aviation dreams!

JOIN ME in helping Jessica to make Rightfooted a reality!

Three years in the making, Jessica’s documentary, Rightfooted, is poised to premier on public television and other venues worldwide, to inspire those who face similar challenges in their lives.

Rightfooted is in the final stretch. But Jessica needs US to get it to the finish line!

Hurry, we must raise $40,000 by November 17!

Donate here:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-right-footed-take-the-final-step–2/x/2711457

 Any amount, however small, will help get Rightfooted where it belongs: inspiring the hearts and minds of millions of challenged souls around the world!
