Heard Something, Read Something, Saw Something [#15]

Hey there!

Here’s the 15th installment of my popular Heard Something, Read Something, Saw Something series.

So, what do we have this time...

Heard Something
These 11 minutes will restore your faith in humanity. A student pilot loses her front nose gear on takeoff on her 3rd solo flight ever. An incredible amount of support comes in over the radio from the tower and fellow pilots, helping her keep her calm and eventually land safely. Heartwarming all around. Just listen.
Hear it: https://youtu.be/USW53vdL_0c

Read Something
Here’s a great piece on paying it backward. From music to sports to movies, Matt shares some great examples of younger, “hotter” talents shining a light on someone they’d long respected to help elevate them in the public consciousness.

Saw Something
“Whoever came up with this superb bit of creativity at Target, I salute you.” You kinda wonder if it was put up this way, or if a customer did the deed. Regardless, clever!
