The Wall

Running over behind the wall, he gagged and threw up. Then it was off to the club for a drink.

Eddie Rickenbacker, the WWI “Ace of Aces” and Medal of Honor recipient, claimed 26 victories over enemy pilots. This former chauffer-turned-pilot shot down more aircraft and balloons than any other WWI U.S. pilot. His secret was to get closer than anyone else dared and then start shooting.

Every time he landed he ran for that wall.

He felt the fear and flew anyway.

So when you feel that fear and are looking for a wall to hide behind, know that it’s alright.

You were born to fly.
