How to Believe In a Little Girl

Act #162:  Tell them they can fly.

I was eight years old the first time I flew on an airplane.  I was completely fascinated by the flight attendants - then called "stewardesses".  They were so graceful, so poised.  And everyone seemed mesmerized by their charm.  As I got off the plane I remember proudly proclaiming to my mom, "I want to be a stewardess when I grow up!"  My mom turned to me gently and whispered, "You could definitely be a stewardess honey, but you know you could also fly the plane."
