Texas based author Kathleen M. Rodgers’ poem featured in new exhibit at The Cradle of Aviation Museum, Long Island, NY

Posted July 20, 2015 

I’m thrilled to announce that my poem, “A Little Boy’s Dream,” from the book Because I Fly (McGraw-Hill 2002, edited by Helmut H. Reda), is displayed with a photo of my husband, Tom, seated in the cockpit of an A-10 fighter (circa 1980) at this new exhibit which asks the question, “Why do we fly?”

One can only imagine the confusion, the fear, the wait for evacuation.
