The Wright Brothers

In 1903, the Wright Brothers did something that no other human had ever done before. They flew in the air using a heavier- than- air craft. To put it in simpler terms, they flew the first airplane! On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright flew 120 feet staying in the air for about 12 seconds. Wilber had tried flying their machine three days prior, but he could not get control of the machine and crashed the machine shortly after take off.  They then had to repair the machine and three days later Orville made history. The brothers took turns flying it after that first successful flight and they both took two turns that day. The final flight of the day, Wilber flew 852 feet and was in the air for 59 seconds. The picture of the first flight was captured by an employee of the U.S. Life-Saving Service, who was there in case their flight went horribly wrong. These two brothers were pioneers in the field of flight. At Beehive Bow Ties, we are three brothers who are working together to make high- quality bow ties. We hope that we can make a difference just like the Wright Brothers did on that cold and windy December morning.


Today is the first Tuesday in November! It is Election Day! This year’s election is projected to have the largest voter turnout in the history of the United States. Nearly 100 million people have voted early, which accounts for about 72% of the total votes in the 2016 election. Hawaii, Texas, Montana, and Washington have all already surpassed their total voter turnout from 2016. President Trump has been holding rallies all over the United States over the past week trying to get as much momentum as possible before today. Former Vice President Joe Biden has not made quite as many appearances as President Trump this week, but has been holding rallies in some of the so- called battleground states.

No matter who you will be voting for this year, voting is one of your rights as a citizen of the United States. It is also one of your civic duties as a citizen. Everyone who is eligible to vote should vote. People complain for four years about who is president, but do not vote, go and vote and make sure that you do your part to make sure that the democracy that we have runs properly. This country is in a period of unrest. From disease to racial injustice, this country has been to hell and back this year. Now we have this election, which has caused even more unrest amongst citizens. Businesses have boarded up their windows to try and prevent rioters from breaking their windows if the election goes unfavorably one way or the other. 

We need to be showing respect and love to one another. Today is our day to express our support of a party or candidate. We are all American’s, which will always make us “One nation under God!” Get out and vote, accept the result, and be an honorable American. God bless!
