“Gohobi” (Reward) for Daniel

Once in a while, after his homework or violin practice, I allow Daniel to watch a video clip for a couple of minutes.

I’ve made a folder titled “LINDBERGH”, which contains numerous insightful video clips: 

The aviator and his mother posing for photos with their obligatory smiles.  

The making of the Spirit of St. Louis, Lindbergh’s silver monoplane.

And here it is, showing the (scary!) take-off.  Believe it or not, this marked the beginning of the legendary journey to Paris, which transformed a nameless airmail pilot into a world hero.
