Where it all began...
The window looks out over the Missouri River, a view that's mostly sky, a view I like to think might have inspired the young Amelia.
Today, Amelia is still in the news, as the TIGHAR research team has come to the end of its current search at the tiny island of Nikumaroro.
When my mother was dying, she told me that she was also interested in Amelia Earhart -- that she remembered as a little girl, listening to the radio at suppertime, for news of the famous woman flyer who was missing. So, I guess it's in my blood. Even when Amelia's gone from the radar of others, she'll remain one of my heroines, I am sure.
If you're quick about it, and click on Google today, you'll see that even they are observing Amelia's birthday.
