Scared to fly?
I love traveling. The thrill of going to a new place, seeing new things, and meeting new people—I love every second of it.
In the summer of 2021, I was all set to go to Colorado, where I would be a staff member at a youth adventure camp for Christian Scientists. I was very excited, except for one thing: To get to Colorado, I had to get on an airplane . . . and planes aren’t my cup of tea.
The plane ride began, and takeoff wasn’t too bad. I watched some Monty Python comedy shows in an attempt to de-stress and forget that I was on a plane. But it wasn’t long before we hit some turbulence, and I started to freak out. I clutched my armrest and pulled down the shade on my window so I wouldn’t have to see the storm we were flying through.
