“The airplanes slowly taxied to the beginning of the runway, humbly and calmly with flaps down, bowing with deference to the infinite sky.”
Ross Victory, Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son

“This book is about our lives and legacy as men connected through blood and– should nature have its way– the ultimate choice we as sons face to preserve our father’s legacy or to torch it to build something new.”
Ross Victory, Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son

“I saw portraits of pain and snapshots of hope—they appeared as complex energies, softly kaleidoscopic, levitating in air with no connotations to joy or pain.”
Ross Victory, Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son

“I did not want to fight. I did not want to argue. I just wanted to look into her eyes to get a sense of her soul’s motivation.”

“As sons we have that choice: we can own what was done to us and choose to do better or we can do worse and continue a theme of broken men. [Broken men break other men. Broken men break women. Broken men break families. Broken men create broken legacies].”
