I just recently learned the incredibly story of Bessie Coleman. The short version is that in the early 1900’s Bessie Coleman, an African-American woman, bucked every societal barrier that was in her way to become an aviation legend. The longer version is much more complex and is well worth the time to read it.
We all encounter barriers to our dreams, but Bessie Coleman took her’s head on and beat them all. Remember that when it seems like something is in your way.
