Review for Girls With Wings, Inc., Lakewood, OH, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

A young woman commercial pilot goes full-time on a mission to make a difference in the lives of little girls. That is not the usual in this age of "it's all about me". The right type of person always could tell something about a book by its cover and the Girls With Wings web site has a lot more to say at first glance. It is fun playful design that would appeal to little girls as well as adults. The content speaks for itself. In addition i have had some communication with the founder and that supports what i read about in this delightful web site. The founder pilot has made a personal sacrifice in life to give of herself to others in a mission for our children.
I'd change some terms like "role models" and honor the sacredness of a princess but Girls With Wings deserves your support.

Over the course of life i've found that so called "role models" are actors who play the role. How about "good examples". "You will know them by their fruits."

Role:  Volunteer & Joined the organization and provided some commentary. .

I searched for the definition of "role model" after reading this review and interestingly found this in The American Heritage® New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy: A person who serves as an example of the values, attitudes, and behaviors associated with a role. For example, a father is a role model for his sons. Role models can also be persons who distinguish themselves in such a way that others admire and want to emulate them. For example, a woman who becomes a successful brain surgeon or airline pilot can be described as a role model for other women. What are the chances that they have "airline pilot" in their definition!?!
