Dominion - Blog #1

In 2003, I took my family around to many Indiana state parks. It was the 200th anniversary of Lewis & Clark and I had several of my children who were getting their expedition log stamped in order to earn a prize. Well, we weren't exactly lost, but as we were driving in the middle of seemingly nowhere, we passed a white house and then a enormous jet airplane. We pulled over to discover that it was the birthplace of Wilbur Wright (see their website). I was intrigued to find this plaque that was dedicated by the General Assembly of Indiana in the year of our Lord 1955. They sited Genesis 1:28 and noted that Wilbur was the co-inventor of "the aeroplane that gave man some dominion over the air, sea and earth."

(I held up our newly born first son for the picture. He has
turned out to be quite an inventor himself.)
