I first shared this a couple of years ago when the world seemed to be going crazy and there was nothing I could do about it.
This year has been a real humdoozy too for different reasons!

After another day of dismal and disconcerting headlines I asked my retired fighter pilot/flight instructor/still flying/recently bereaved dad, “So, how are you REALLY doing?”
He replied, “I’m flying the plane.”
He told me the first rule of flying was: NO MATTER WHAT– never, never, never stop flying the plane.
