Today I was boxing stuff to move and ran across a book, The Treasure Chest, given by friends to my mother on her birthday in 1954.   I had bookmarked a page with the poem High Flight on it.   If you're not familiar with it, Google high flight poem to read it.   It's a favorite of Scott and I would assume of Nathan.

The poem was partly quoted by President Reagan after the Challenger explosion. Also an inspirational story behind it.

Great poem! I was not aware of this poem beyond President Reagan's use of it in his speech after the Challenger disaster. It was great to read the full prose. Thanks!
